Black Sunday

Black Sunday

by Benjamin Myers

Black Sunday transports readers into the world of the Dust Bowl in Oklahoma where desperation, darkness, and despair reign, though hope lingers, too. The series of sonnets follows four characters through their experiences during one of the most trying times in our nation's history. In addition, the long, dramatic poem, “Faith Healer,” gives readers a glimpse into a child’s view of these historical events. These accessible, crafted, and wholly moving poems remind readers of the importance and power of love in the darkest times.
