OVERVIEW

In White, the first in a trilogy about historic restoration, preservationist Jennifer, just graduating with her degree, is hired by Michael to restore his family’s landmark home in a rural Georgia area. Along with this modern day story, the reader is given glimpses into Michael’s great-grandmother’s life, Georgia Pearl, a light skinned black woman who finds it easier to just “become” white in a still very prejudiced society.

Jennifer has had losses in her life and only as we read the book does she realize her need for God and a real community of believers. Michael knows the Lord but is at a bitter, angry point in his life but it is Stella, an African American painter who works side by side with Jennifer who helps to draw her to the Lord.
