Marvin V. Blake’s New Historical Novel “Precious in His Sight: (Red; Brown; Yellow; Black; and White)”

A Riveting Insight into the Crucial Reconstruction Era, following the conclusion of the American Civil War.


A Powerful Tale of Resilience and the Pursuit of Equality

Marvin V. Blake, a prominent Black American author, takes readers on a historical journey through one of America’s most transformative periods in his latest book, “Precious In His Sight: (Red; Brown; Yellow; Black; and White).”

Reflecting on his motivation for penning this novel, Marvin states: “As a Black American, I have always thought of that period…, during and immediately following the Civil War, ’Reconstruction,’ as being one of the most crucial periods in American history…, In the thus far, evolution of the United States of America.

“It was during that time of ’Reconstruction,’ that we nudged our country, even if ever so slightly, towards fulfilling those words in the Declaration of Independence; ‘That All Men are Created Equal.’ This book embodies my interpretation of this significant era.”

“Precious In His Sight: (Red; Brown; Yellow; Black; and White)” revolves around two strong women, Irish-immigrant educator Eleanor Leary, and one of her former students; the resilient Rebecca Billing, as they navigate the tumultuous landscape of post-Civil War America. Faced with societal prejudice and the repercussions of governmental changes, they work tirelessly to assist marginalized communities - former black slaves and “Reservation-Indians” - to acquire the skills needed for survival in a Euro-centric American society. Their compelling stories of courage, perseverance, and compassion are the heart of this riveting tale.

This book stands out for its unique portrayal of a critical period in American history, as seen through the lens of diverse characters. Marvin’s skillful intertwining of individual narratives with historical events, offers readers an engaging and profound exploration of resilience, adaptation, and the enduring quest for justice and dignity. “Precious In His Sight” is an enlightening read for those intrigued by history, societal transformations, and the strength of the human spirit.
