Checkered Fences is not only a novel of remarkable insight, but a tribute to our world's changing social and political climate. Author Alma Hudson writes with extraordinary vision and clarity, bringing racial issues to the forefront with delicate balance and thoughtful compassion. It's the late 1970s in California; a time of racial turbulence, but change is in the air and Diane Jones, an African-American 18-year old honors student will come face to face with those changes. Diane takes a job as a nanny to a prestigious white family, Jerry and Ann Shaw, before entering college. She quickly becomes a respected friend and member of their blended family, paying special attention to their eight-year old son, Chad, Ann's son from a previous marriage. Their eldest son, David returns home for the summer and an immediate attraction sparks between Diane and David. They began a secretive love affair. Can Diane's proud, traditional family accept a white man as Diane's love interest and will the Shaw's value her as their son's potential partner? As their love affair blossoms, they decide to make their relationship public. This story of an interracial love during the turbulent 70s deftly explores the ugly racism that propelled our nation's conscious to change toward a more diversified culture. Written with sophisticated realism, Hudson's novel stands out as a literary piece of significance during our present-day political climate. About the Author: Alma Hudson works in legal management. She possesses an Associate's and Bachelor of Arts Degree and lives with her two children and husband, Eugene in Lancaster, California. Checkered Fences is her first novel.
