PT Armstrong's Newest Novel Explores Aftermath of Extramarital, Interracial Affair in the Jim Crow Days

Savannah, GA

From author PT Armstrong comes a provocative tale of passion and lust set in dangerous times, following an extramarital affair in the Deep South that defies the harsh boundaries of racial segregation. "Frank and Mrs. Cahill" risk death to slake their forbidden desires in this new novel.

According to Armstrong, while his tale is fictional it is based on the sordid facts of racial segregation, wherein interracial couples would be shunned from mainstream society or even killed. The Jim Crow laws of the Deep South prevented African-American males from coming into contact with white women, but in his tale, Armstrong portrays how the titular Mrs. Cahill went behind her husband's back, to begin a secret relationship with their servant, Frank. Their forays into temptation and gratification take them beyond the edge of what was socially acceptable at the time, for through his story, the author wishes to portray how passion transcends all boundaries and dangers.

"Blacks and whites - we are not that much different. We will risk our lives to get that feeling from that forbidden fruit," Armstrong says.

The story of "Frank and Mrs. Cahill" is a titillating romance, a daring work that shows just to what extent people will go to in order to defy society's injustices and fulfill their desires.
