Written by Mable J. Harris and inspired by a true story, ‘The Offspring of Rose Foreman’ tells a tragic and poignant tale that will wrench the gut of any modern-day girl or woman. While hard to digest, the story is being shared by Harris in a bold attempt to help readers recognize and appreciate just how far women have come in eighty years.
Hazel Crest, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/12/2013 -- While young girls and women today enjoy equal social footing, the opportunity of limitless professional promotion and high respect from most men – things haven’t always been that way. To help women and young girls recognize the sacrifices women of yesteryear gave for their freedom, Mable J. Harris is delighted to announce a compelling new book.
‘The Offspring of Rose Foreman’ is based on a true story; a story that is as sad and tragic as it is important.
Rose Johnson was born to a fairly large family in the 1930's. This young Afro-American girl witnesses a brutal murder of her older sister Ozzie Johnson.
Fearful this could happen again, Rose decides it's best if she finds a way out of the little town in which she lives. With the help of a young man, Rose leaves town at the age of nine and searches for a better life elsewhere...
As the author explains, readers should prepare for an emotional literary experience.
“The story will take readers right beside Rose, as she watches her sister being murdered by her father and buried in the back garden. Her tumultuous journey then continues as she leaves home, meets a young man and attempts to start a new life. However, it wasn’t that easy,” says Harris.
Continuing, “Back in the 1930s, when African-Americans were poor and dirty, they’d do anything in order to stay alive – it was only by God’s blessing that they’d see another year. They had no rights and had to make do with what little work and resources they could get their hands on. This is a life very different to that of the modern women, and thus is vital to remember.”
Harris hopes the story will hit home with the privileged modern westerner.
This story is so important because so many women of today don't realize how far their sex has come. Nobody has to live that way any longer. So much has changed since Rose's days including a lot of laws for women and especially those in the African-American community. Read this story and learn about the hell this woman found around every corner,” she adds.
With the book’s popularity set to increase, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
