Male protagonist

The Prophets, by Robert Jones Jr.

A cotton plantation in the deep South does not seem a likely place for a tender romance. But amidst all of the horror and hardship, Isaiah has Samuel and Samuel has Isaiah. Separated from the rest of the slaves by their roles working in the barn with the animals, the two men have created a place of refuge, intimacy and hope for themselves. Their relationship is acknowledged but mostly ignored by the rest of the plantation. Until that is, a fellow slave seeks to gain the Master’s favour by preaching the gospel.
Suddenly, Samuel and Isaiah’s love, which was once so pure, is seen as sinful and a danger to the harmony of the wider plantation. As the enslaved begin to turn on one another, the two men’s future on the plantation becomes more and more uncertain. Read More »

The Mountain Between Us, by Charles Martin

Stranded in Salt Lake City by a blizzard, two strangers decide to charter a plane together, hoping to return home sooner. Ben Payne is a talented surgeon, returning home from a conference, Ashley Knox, a magazine writer, is desperate to get home for her impending wedding. When tragedy strikes, the pair find themselves stranded in Utah’s most remote wilderness in the dead of winter. Badly injured, miles from civilisation, without food or shelter and with only Ben’s mountaineering gear to help them survive.
Ashely and Ben’s chances of survival look bleak, as days in the mountains turn to weeks and their hope for rescue dwindles. How will they make it out of the wilderness and if they do, how will this experience change them forever? Read More »
