More About This Title Challenging The Forces of Hate


While this novel is a sequel to The Wounds of Hate, the focus moves from the schools to the neighborhoods in San Jose, California and Tijuana, Mexico. Here, the problems, which face the defense attorneys and the prosecution team, are described as they work tirelessly to bring the criminals to justice. The problems in our society are of vital importance to everyone. How forcefully must it be emphasized? That people who are driven by hate and prejudice destroy not only the people they dislike, but also the entire society that surrounds them? The main characters in the novel are Kathy Stacy, a preschool teacher, Jim Irving, principal at John Dewey High School; Paula Klein, former teacher at Jefferson High School and Roy Larson, special investigator for the prosecution. As the story evolves, Kathy and Paula find themselves in more and more dangerous situations as well as active participants in a love story, which sweep them close to the edge of destruction.
