Happy Black History Month! Although I write fiction I incorporate factual Black History into my books. Throughout this month I have been posting excerpts from my novels that reference Black history. This is the last and fifth installment, an excerpt from my most recent romance novel, which was a finalist for the 2017 Emma Award for the Best Contemporary Romance of the year, All For Love: The SuperStar.
“As soon as Mate reached the top of the terrace steps, the orchestra began to play the “Triumphal March” from the opera “Aida” by Giuseppe Verdi.
This was my amazing Angela’s homage to Black History for our wedding; her backdrop as she walked down the aisle. In “Aida” the star and central character of the opera is a Nubian princess, and the role was famously sung by opera great, Leontyne Price.”
