Published: 6- Sep- 2019    |    Language:   Article in English    |    Category: Press Release

Reading this book ‘The Black and White House’ by author Robert James Bridge kept me hooked on.  It is literally a piece of fiction as it deals with several themes that are prominent in today’s world.  I can reveal and admit that this book was an addictive read for me. 

The story takes us back in the 1950’s era.  Born to a poor family, Joshua Jenks is a black man who rises to the challenge of becoming a Senator for Memphis, Privileged to be taken under the wings of Sam McLeod, the patriarch of a rich white family for whom his family worked under, he is given an education the envy of many of his friends and peers. 

His dreams though puts him directly in the line of racism even as he confronts the world of politics and power.  Terrorism and its threats play a huge role in his line of work as a Middle East advisor with direct access to the President himself. 

Joshua Jenks was perhaps luckier than his friends when his folks gained employment with a local rich white family who had inherited a whisky company in Scotland. Joshua became the son Sam Mcloed and his wife had always wanted even though they had a daughter same age as Joshua. With Sam's money and expertise plus against all odds Joshua Jenks becomes Senator for Memphis then Middle East Advisor with direct contact to the president himself and this is where the suspense and intrigue kicks in.

Jenks’ story takes its readers on a journey as it weaves in and out of suspense and intrigue. 

Author Robert James Bridge is almost 82 years old. He lives on the South East coast of the UK along with his wife.  ‘The Black and White House’ is his latest book and is a on the edge thriller.  The story opens in 1950 in Memphis, not long after racism was almost eradicated for good. 

Those readers really interested on a journey will find this book a truly fun read to enjoy as it weaves in and out of suspense and intrigue. 

All in all, I found this book enjoyable.  ‘The Black and White House’ is well-written with excellent descriptions too. 

Infact Robert James Bridge created an interesting plot that keeps the reader wanting to continue to know what is happening.
