The Hum in the Blood by Cheryl Jimmerson is now available in e-book format!
Being a lesbian is a frightening secret to have in Sasha’s black Southern Baptist family. She attempts to pray away her attraction to women. At college, she meets an older woman, Gwen. When Gwen suddenly dumps her, Sasha takes it as a sign and makes a promise to God not to sleep with another woman.
After college, Sasha leads a celibate life as an accountant. Things change when she meets Lauren, who shares her Southern Baptist background. Estranged from her homophobic family, Lauren is out and proud, and Sasha struggles with her growing feelings. When they declare their love for each other, Sasha is convinced there’s nothing sinful about their union.
But when she comes out to her family, she realizes how steeped her family is in their religious beliefs and how ingrained those same beliefs are in her. Can she overcome her past to find a future with Lauren?
