In the Shadow of Alabama by Reene Singer. Published by Kensington

Rachel Fleischer reluctantly leaves her horse farm to go to travel to her father’s deathbed. The Fleischer family didn’t do “family” well. It’s not until Rachel meets a stranger at her father’s funeral, a stranger whose gift leads Rachel to trace her father’s past and his time as a Jewish sergeant in command of a regiment of Black soldiers during World War II in 1940’s Alabama that she gets a sense of the man her father really was. This is a masterful story of bravery and compassion suppressing ignorance and bigotry
