|About the Book|
Whispered Sins chronicles the life of the irresistible Joe Wilborn, born in rural Mississippi to a black teenage mother and a white father, who in spite of being orphaned at eight, rises from his humble beginnings to become one of the wealthiest and most powerful men of his time. This fictional saga spans 50 years as Joe takes his passage from boy to manhood when he is introduced to the power of his own sexuality at a young age by a forbidden seductress. He finds pleasure in women and books and through them escapes to worlds far away. Joe attends Harvard Law School and his compassion and vision to economically free the Black community during the turbulent 60s and 70s is realized. But his hidden life style continues. One of his unsavory indiscretions surfaces which threatens to destroy in a moment what has taken a lifetime to build.
