The Reckoning by Tanya Parker Mills

This week I am featuring The Reckoning by Tanya Parker Mills. This great novel was a finalist in two categories for the Whitney Award, and won the 2009 Indie Book Award for Multicultural Fiction.

When journalist Theresa Fuller is captured inside Iraq in August 2002, and imprisoned by Iraq's secret police, visions of her childhood in Baghdad begin to haunt her. Tormented by the relentless Colonel Badr, she only finds relief in her growing attraction to Tariq al-Awali, the Iraqi captain who took charge of her capture. Before American bombs begin to fall, Theresa must find a way to escape the cruelty of an oppressive regime and save those she cares for most.

You can purchase The Reckoning at, and an eBook version is also available on Kindle.
