A compelling dual-narrated tale from Jennifer Latham that questions how far we've come with race relations.


Some bodies won't stay buried.
Some stories need to be told.


When seventeen-year-old Rowan Chase finds a skeleton on her family's property, she has no idea that investigating the brutal century-old murder will lead to a summer of painful discoveries about the present and the past.

Nearly one hundred years earlier, a misguided violent encounter propels seventeen-year-old Will Tillman into a racial firestorm. In a country rife with violence against blacks and a hometown segregated by Jim Crow, Will must make hard choices on a painful journey towards self discovery and face his inner demons in order to do what's right the night Tulsa burns.

Through intricately interwoven alternating perspectives, Jennifer Latham's lightning-paced page-turner brings the Tulsa race riot of 1921 to blazing life and raises important questions about the complex state of US race relations--both yesterday and today.
Jennifer Lathamis an army brat with a soft spot for kids, books, and poorly behaved dogs. She's the author ofScarlett Undercoverand lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with her husband and two daughters.Praise forDreamland Burning:
