JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind., September 8, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Fulton Books author Larry Z. Williams, a spiritually blessed man who aims to spread the glory of the Lord, has completed his most recent book "We Suffer For a Reason": a gripping and emotional historical fiction that follows a man from Georgia named Eli, who woke up one day in a different era. As strange as it may seem, he began this mystical journey and experienced firsthand the brutal reality that his ancestors had to live with. Join Eli as he unfolds the bitter truth and unforgettable lessons embedded in a tale that seamlessly blends historical fact and science fiction meant to illuminate the current generation.
Larry writes, "These lessons and stories of truths take root in Eli, and as he grows into a young adult, he begins to place his thoughts onto paper in the form of controversial poems and creative writings. Many tales given him by Mama Bee of having slave ancestry, including one from whom his own name, Eli, was derived from causes our main character to ponder deeply, so deep in fact that while cleaning the attic of his great-grandmother Glenda's home, he comes across photos from the distant past.
"Unfortunately, the rickety old stool that he sat upon gave way, and Eli suffered a fall through the floor and onto the glass kitchen table below. When Eli awoke from unconsciousness, he finds himself in the 1800s being helped to a shack belonging to his Mama Bee's great-grandparents, Eli Sr. and his common-law wife, Burnice.
"And now our journey begins."
