New Novel Address Race Issues in the American South

the color of my heartAuthor Believes Heart Matters More Than Skin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Do you see the color of someone’s skin or the color of their heart? That’s the question author Sarah Martin Byrd hopes readers ponder as they enjoy her new novel The Color of My Heart (Ambassador International; October 2012; $14.99; Paperback). The book follows Laura Carter, whose perfect life is rocked by a shocking letter from her great-grandmother revealing secrets about her birth family. A stack of diaries traces Laura’s ancestors’ heartbreaking voyage from Africa to Georgia on a slave ship. “Laura is thrown face-to-face with prejudices that exist in her community and in her own family,” says Byrd. “Ultimately she understands that we all have one maker. No matter what color we are on the outside, it’s the inside that truly matters.”

Byrd quotes scripture to highlight the theme of the novel The Color of My Heart. “28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Gal. 3:28-29, NIV). “God does not judge us based on our race, skin, beauty or lack of,” says Byrd, “He judges us by the condition of our hearts. Not our wealth, color, or position in life. So the color of one’s heart matters more than the color of skin.”

Sarah Martin Byrd is a graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature. She is a published novelist, newspaper columnist and blogger. Sarah loves sharing her life story with children of all ages. The Color of My Heart is Sarah’s second published novel.
