Sins of the Heart by Robert Evans
Ezekiel Robinson is smart, educated and driven. His father and step-mother moved him from the Deep South to New York City, so they could provide the family with a better opportunity. His birth mother and her eight-month fetus were killed at the hands of three vicious men for slapping the farm owner after he slapped her. Ezekiel worked hard to be an excellent student and even obtained a Master's Degree, but remained tormented by the senseless murder of his mother and enraged that his father did nothing to avenge his mother's death until his father explains why. Will Ezekiel's refusal to ignore what he feels are blatant injustices jeopardize his accomplishments and health?
