The last thing Hosanna wants is a bucket, a dishrag, and a brush. After all, it’s been fifteen years.

Her heart and knees have grown callous from years of scrubbing floors for her bitter grandmother, who is grievously disgusted with the unlawful deed committed by Hosanna's white mother and black father during the reign of Jim Crow.

But after years of being a maid for her own family, Hosanna grows tired; tired of the lies that have been cloaking the family’s shame for far too long. So tired, she has waxed in wrath, counted every injustice, and rebelled against all who obstruct her quest for truth.

So will she ever find peace?

This uniquely-crafted story transcends time and takes us from the racial animus of 1945 to the abiding power of grace that heals and binds divisive wounds.

Reviews

"Hosanna is a well-written book, obviously professionally edited, with a thought-provoking story line that embraces the racial divide in 1940s Georgia. The author artfully developed the characters and their sometimes difficult dialogue to portray the culture for that time period in such a compelling way that I felt I was right there with them. The plot was well-structured, the narrative flowed well, and the story was engaging. 5 Stars."―Awesome Indies

"Katelyne Parker’s Hosanna is a fresh and emotional historical novel that emphasizes the importance of love despite class and racial differences. Hosanna’s voice is memorable within this timeless story."―Clarion Review

"Some books, like some movies, are unforgettable. Hosanna by Katelyne Parker is one of those... 5-Stars"―Readers' Favorite More info →
