Distant Shores by Gary E. Parker is the story of Theo, a young slave boy in the year of 1865, and his quest to discover his mother after a dream of her presence on the Oak Plantation. Deftly carrying readers through the tale of young Theo's engaging pursuit, Distant Shores brings the boy's travels to Lynette Wheeler, a hotel owner in Richmond whose secrets of over twenty years will reveal to Theo the truths he must know. Distant Shores is a very highly recommended and entertaining reading novel of one young man's sometimes harrowing adventures in the post-slavery, post-Civil War south.
