Jonathan Jacob Benjamin is running from a memory of a mother he loved. His journey will thrust him into a world filled with secrets so shocking, he will have to determine if he will forgive or walk away.

What other had to say about the book
Praise for Color Me Jazzmyne
“I am usually not speechless after finishing a book. After reading
Color Me Jazzmyne by Marian L. Thomas, I can say that I am….
Color Me Jazzmyne is a touching story of a woman overcoming the
wrong that was committed against her. Each chapter of this book
gives readers a different section of who Jazzmyne is and who she
wanted to forget she was.”
                            -Teresa Beasley, APOOO Book Club
“This book is one of the most poignant stories I have ever read. The
young heroine, Naya Mona, is a strong presence that has endured far
more than any normal child has, and experienced unspeakable abuses,
and yet, surfaces and faces her fears by clinging to the one steady and
true love in her life- music.”
-Sally Shields, Bestselling author of
                                    The Daughter-in-Law Rules 

Praise for My Father’s Colors
“My Father’s Colors is a thoughtful read, highly recommended.”
                                      -Midwest Book Review
 
“This book is guaranteed to touch every emotion within you! While it
is a story of a one woman’s journey to define the colors in her crayon
box, it could have easily been any woman’s story.”
                          -Darling Swan, Sistah Girl Reading Club

Excerpt:

Prologue
The two best friends sat on the bank of the only lake
that ran through Jackson County. One was a slightly
tall, raging thin-framed girl with two long braids that
hung on either side of her head. Full olive skin
wrapped every inch of her body. Her tiny freckles, sporadically
placed, highlighted her green eyes and pointed nose. Her
mother was a short woman who moved to Jackson
County from Virginia with her parents, when she was 15
and a half years old. She had found herself a tall country
boy, and they had a small and swaddled country girl, if there
ever was such a thing. They named her—Haley.
The other one was a smart, somewhat sassy, almond-skinned
girl with eyes so blue they spun a rare color of aqua in the
sunlight. Her long, thick hair and curvy frame completed the
look. Her father was a slender man with brown wavy hair and
green eyes. He was born in Chicago, but when he couldn’t find
work after entering his adult years, he moved to the farm life of
Jackson County, just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1955.
