“Revised Edition Family Ties: Thicker than Blood hints at a balance between the desired and the forbidden. But it’s only when the lines dividing the two are blurred that realization comes: life mandates a division, as the truth we live seldom substantiates the path imagined. There are people to whom circumstance connects you that represent more than branches on a genealogical tree. In Family Ties: Thicker than Blood, author, B. G. Howard explains the need to accept the fact there is no middle ground…and only one option where family is concerned.”

—Professor Gwen Alexis



Life in rural Georgia proves anything but easy for Willie LeBeaux, as childhood obstacles continue to present emotional and psychological barriers he simply can’t escape. The effort to start anew drives him to the city that never sleeps, where he hopes to get lost amidst the faceless inhabitants of post-911 New York.
