Ernest Hill
A Life for a Life: A NovelA Life for a Life: A Novel by Ernest Hill (Hardcover - Aug 18, 1998) Other Editions: Paperback ~ In A Life for a Life, Ernest Hill explores the volatile emotional terrain of a black youth's coming of age in rural Louisiana. When a local drug dealer threatens to kill D'Ray Reid's kid brother unless he comes up with $100 within an hour, D'Ray decides to hold up a convenience store in a nearby town. The young clerk at the cash register attempts to foil the robbery and in the scuffle D'Ray shoots and kills him. What follows is an absorbing drama in which D'Ray becomes a fugitive with a lengthening resume of violent crime. Yet it is ultimately in the person of Henry Earl, the slain boy's father, that D'Ray sees his future. When he is forced to reckon with his destruction of the boy's family, D'Ray finds that Henry Earl is his only advocate and the person who will ask of him what no one, not even his family, had ever asked before.
A Person of InterestA Person of Interest by Ernest Hill (Paperback - Oct 1, 2006) At the start of Hill's compelling fifth novel (after It's All About The Moon When The Sun Ain't Shining), recently widowed Felicia Fontenot, who has returned home to Brownsville, Tenn., to care for her elderly mother, looks out her bedroom window early one morning and sees that the house across the street has become a crime scene. Her neighbor, Luther Jackson, has come home to find the bodies of his wife and son both burned beyond recognition after being doused with gasoline. Having secretly loved Luther for more than 20 years, Felicia has a powerful urge to comfort him and proclaim his innocence, even though Luther is the prime suspect in the double murder. Harboring a shameful secret, Luther does little to defend himself. His aunt, Daphne Gipson, perplexed by his silence, enlists Felicia's aid in uncovering the truth. As the story unfolds through the eyes of Felicia and Luther, these unforgettable characters come to full, sympathetic life.
Cry Me A RiverCry Me A River by Ernest Hill (Paperback - May 1, 2004) Other Editions: Hardcover ~ At age 40, and after 10 years, Tyrone Stokes has been released from prison. He returns to his mother's home in Louisiana to learn that his 17-year-old son, Marcus, is in jail--on death row for the rape and murder of a young white girl. Tyrone does not really know his son nor has his wife, Pauline, allowed their son to communicate with him, yet he is convinced that Marcus is innocent. With only eight days left before the scheduled execution, Tyrone is hellbent on proving his son's innocence. He begins interviewing people and discovers some interesting facts that put the case against his son in question. Tyrone is willing to put his own safety and freedom in jeopardy to end the suffering that his son, wife, and family have endured because of his incarceration. Keeping his son alive becomes his daily mantra, but just as important is his desire to make up for his absence and put his family back together.
It's All About The Moon When The Sun Ain't ShiningIt's All About The Moon When The Sun Ain't Shining by Ernest Hill (Paperback - May 3, 2005) Other Editions: Hardcover ~ Maurice Dupree is the repository of all of the dreams of his hardworking parents, who eke out a living as a maid and a laborer in Brownsville, Louisiana. Maurice is home on his last Christmas break before he will graduate in May from Louisiana State University and is anxious to see Omenita, his girlfriend since grade school. She is his first love, his only love, and he's reluctant to tell her that after waiting four years for him to graduate, she will now have to wait longer for him to finish law school. Desperate to leave her dysfunctional family, Omenita is pressing Maurice to marry her sooner rather than later. His mother, unhappy with Omenita's family background, warns Maurice against a hasty decision and pushes him to take the opportunity to be the first black lawyer in his hometown. In this first-person narrative, Hill offers a poignant portrait of a young man at a crossroads in his life, struggling with the true meaning of love and torn between the pleadings of the women in his life.
