Named Notable Indie #1 in the Shelf Unbound Magazine 2019 Best Indie Book Awards. Deception, witchcraft, and the secrets of a long-dead former slave churn the life of ambitious young clergyman Coleman Hightower - even as fear, bombings, and riots rock the nation. Timothy J. Garrett's historical novel A PLACE CALLED JUBILEE tells Coleman's story as he leaves his mountain home and arrives in Washington D.C. in 1961 as the Civil Rights movement explodes across America. Coleman's plans for a prestigious life are torn apart by his forbidden longing for beautiful and fiery activist Rosalee. His search for meaning turns into a desperate journey that takes him and the woman of his dreams all the way to Jubilee, Alabama - a place where intrigue, betrayal, and murder combine to make Coleman wonder if he will win Rosalee's love or even leave the tiny town alive.
