But by the Grace of God

A novel following a decorated African American general as he reflects on his life after a near-fatal heart attack.
In But by the Grace of God, Hope Lynne Price-Lindsay tells the story of decorated African American four-star general Frederick (Fred) Anderson. When Fred suffers a near-fatal heart attack on the golf course and is rushed to Walter Reed Hospital, he is fortunate to land in the hands of his old college roommate and Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity brother Nathanial Wilkes, chief of cardiology. To ensure his old friend receives optimal care, Nathanial personally oversees Fred’s recovery and appoints his gifted young protégé, cardiology resident Christian Moore, to check in on Fred daily when making his rounds. Christian notices the absence of visitors, and what begins as a series of cordial bedside check-ins soon blossoms into a friendship that ultimately goes far beyond what Fred ever imagined. Numerous coincidences and the eerie resemblance between Fred and Christian force Fred to dive deep into his complicated past to exhume a dark secret that his ambition forced him to bury decades ago. Now alone and near death, mourning his past and the family he let slip through his fingers, Fred sees Christian as his last opportunity for redemption.
In this book, Hope Lynne Price-Lindsay takes readers on an extraordinary journey of intricate twists and turns: the curse of assimilation, secrets, lies, and betrayals that ultimately lead to a desperate last cry for redemption.
