Till You Hear from Me: A Novel by Pearl Cleage

From the acclaimed Pearl Cleage, author ofWhat Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day. . . andSeen It All and Done the Rest, comes an Obama-era romance featuring a cast of unforgettable characters. Just when it appears that all her hard work on Barack Obamarsquo;s presidential campaign is about to pay off with a White House job, thirty-five-year-old Ida B. Wells Dunbar finds herself on Washington, D.C.rsquo;s post-election sidelines even as her twentysomething counterparts overrun the West Wing. Adding to her woes, her father, the Reverend Horace A. Dunbar, Atlanta civil rights icon and self-described ldquo;foot soldier for freedom,rdquo; is notoriously featured on an endlessly replayed YouTube clip in which his pronouncements donrsquo;t exactly jibe with the new era in American politics. The Revrsquo;s stinging words and myopic views donrsquo;t sound anything like the man who raised Ida to make her mark in the world. When friends call to express their concern, Ida realizes itrsquo;s time to head home and see for herself whatrsquo;s going on. Besides, with her job prospects growing dimmer, getting out of D.C. for a while might be the smartest move she could make. Back in her old West End neighborhood, Ida runs into childhood friend and smooth political operator Wes Harper, also in town to pay a visit to the Reverend Dunbar, his mentor. Ida doesnrsquo;t trust Wes or his mysterious connections for one second, but she canrsquo;t deny her growing attraction to him. While Ida and the Rev try to find the balance between personal loyalties and political realities, they must do some serious soul searching in order to get things back on track before Wes permanently derails their best laid plans.
