About the Book

E. D. Arrington returns with: Forever Was A Day, the sequel to her spellbinding novel, Stay The Course.  In this continuing saga, Lori  faces possibly the toughest challenges of her short life's journey.  Mere hours after attending her grandmother's ("Ma") funeral, Lori is sent away from the only home she knows, away from the only people she loves, to live in Alexandria, Virginia, with a relative she has just met.  A relative who comes from the white-looking side of the family.  A relative who has neglected to tell her husband one minor detail...that Lori looks like...a Negro.

What Readers Said About Stay The Course:

Stay The Course is a magnificent book.  It's the kind of book that should be in every school in this country. Our children need to know what it was truly like in the '60s and '70s, and Stay The Course does just that. Our children need to know their history, and Stay The Course is full of facts.-Isolene Taylor, (Retired Teacher) Snow Hill, N.C.

I enjoyed Stay The Course very much, chuckling at times and crying, too. The author tells a story of love, devotion, hope, despair, faith, and triumph.  I am anxiously awaiting the sequel.-Beverley Brown, Falls Church, VA.

I am a reading enrichment teacher.  My students enjoyed Stay The Course. They learned so much about segregation.-Uzal Daniels, Los Angeles, CA

I am overwhelmed at the impact Stay The Course had on me.  The author really captured the "Old South" style.-Kris Chinn, Washington, D.C.

As an assistant principal, I would recommend Stay The Course to be included as required reading for all children. It teaches so much about how to overcome life's challenges in a positive way-Tonya Johnson, Wilson, N.C.
