Pillar of Salt
A lesson in history, life and race tops this classic novel about Black life in America during the Great Depression years of the 1930s. It’s such an eye-opening filled with drama and an understanding of tragedy, violence and love. Pillar of Salt is for both the Black and White reader to experience and become educated on the social turmoil of America. Another powerful novel abut emotions and life’s lessons. –Portia A.

What The Readers Say
Evelyn Allen Johnson
I dedicate this book to those employees who work diligently, in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF’’s) to give quality care to those Patients entrusted to their care. These workers, skilled in the care of their long term patients, provide physical care as directed by standards defined by state laws and patient needs. Some needs, however, cannot be defined or measured. Among which are love, consideration and patience. Since these requisites can- not be measured, monetary compensation is not forthcoming. In spite of this factor, employees give of themselves instinctively and generously to meet the complete needs of patients. I con- sequently love, support and honor them with the dedication of this book.
