Publisher Marketing: WEDGEWOOD GREY takes place in the 1960's and is centered on a racially motivated act of violence. The defenders of a brutally attacked black woman must flee the area and are assisted by Missy Parker and her family in their escape. Mose Washington plays a pivotal role as the Black or White Chronicles saga continues.
Missy is now a young woman and newly married. Mose has returned to the lake after spending five years in prison for killing a wicked man. His beloved wife Pip is lost to cancer leaving Mose to find his way alone. His spiritual insight and sensitivity tend to put him in the all the wrong places at all the right times.

Evil Still Lurks At Cat Lake  Apr 7, 2007
First, let me say this and get it out of the way. John Aubrey Anderson has in a matter of a few months become one of my favorite authors. His books are among those that will always remain in my possession. I couldn't possibly think of parting with them. They're too important for what they teach and how they entertain. Entertaining while teaching valuable truths is one of those things I want to learn to do in my own writing. With the help of novels like Wedgewood Grey and it's predecessor, Abiding Darkness, I feel it is a doable task.

Wedgewood Grey is book two in the Black Or White Chronicles. And it's the ongoing saga of the Washington family and the Parker family. This emphasis this time out is on Mose Washington, whose family went through so much and yet this man stood strong in his faith in book one, Abiding Darkness.

Fifteen years prior to this books story, Mose lost his young son to the evil that has taken root at Cat Lake. That was only the beginning. Now as you open the pages of Wedgewood Grey you'll find Mose in another predicament at the infamous lake. One that will cause him to run, while taking on the responsibility of raising a boy whose lost his mother despite Mose's best efforts to the stop the evil from taking her.

The one thing I found surprising about this second installment was the near absence of Missy Parker, who upon reading Abiding Darkness, one would conclude is the focal point of the series. She's there and she plays a most valuable part, but it's very late in the story. On the contrary the story really centers itself around Mose and an FBI agent named Jeff Wagner. Wagner is a man who, try as he might, can seem to draw no other conclusion concerning resent events than that it's the work of demons and the God they oppose. A shoe he finds, as an unbeliever in such ideas, very hard to fit.

With this novel, Anderson's second, I see growth as a writer and storyteller. His words are full of wisdom and charm, wit and grace. He is indeed among the best of today, and maybe even yesteryear's, southern fiction writers. If you enjoy stories of the old south or of the good ole days as many call them, you'll love this story. If spiritual warfare is your thing, you'll love this book. If you just love an engaging story that will take you to a place you've never gone, but would love to be, you'll love this story.

I can't wait for the next installment coming later this year. It's called And If I Die. I'm full of questions about what more will happen with Mose and what's to become of Missy.

I hope you'll join me in finding out.
An excellent good story about acceptance  Mar 20, 2007
John Aubrey Anderson's Wedgwood Grey is a feast of a read and takes you on a ride to places unknown and undiscovered. The story of Mose Washington (the book's hero), his son Junior and their friendship with the Parker family almost left me in tears. Yet, that's a good thing, but I am jumping ahead of myself.

The Washington family is a black and the Parkers are white. These families are thrown together in a life-long bond due to a tragedy that occurs some years ago. Mose Washington's son Junior gave his life to save Bobby Lee and Susan Parker's daughter Missy. Junior's heroism, his fight against demons bent on killing Missy, dissolved any color barrier between the two families. Junior, caught between the forces of good and evil, lost his life on Cat Lake in a ferocious fight. So, it didn't matter what crude and mean-spirited remarks people made about the friendship between the wealthy Parkers and Mose, the great grandson of a slave.

There is so much excitement and juicy events that you'll be glued to the book's last page. Horrid things occurred on Cat Lake fifteen years ago. History then repeats and Mose is forced to confront these same evil elements.

You see--there can never be any peace in this small Mississippi town. A chance meeting between a small group of young white thugs and a black woman and her son on Cat Lake leads to another nightmare. Here, again, Mose Washington has the fight of his life--and what shocking things happen will surprise you.

The FBI gets involved and the fight between good and evil begins! Will Mose and the young boy survive the pursuit of those hell bent on bringing them to so-called justice? Will the Parkers come to the aid of their closest and dearest friend? Will the young boy ever recover from watching his mother be killed on Cat Lake that fateful night? Most of all, whatever happened to Missy Parker and how does her reappearance add to this fugitive story?

Wedgewood Grey will indeed leave you heavily anticipating the coming of Book Three!

Armchair Interviews says: John Aubrey Anderson has written a book for all to draw from.
Anderson Hits Almost All the Right Notes  Feb 22, 2007
John Aubrey Anderson is a new author who writes with a wisdom and talent that belies his "new" status. His first book in the Black and White Chronicles, Abiding Darkness, set a high standard for the subsequent books.

Let me say right away that you won't do the story justice if you don't read Abiding first. The story there is spoiled if you skip to Wedgewood Grey. He does a good job of bringing in the elements needed from AD into WG, but it isn't the same as savoring it directly.

WG continues the story of the Parkers and Washingtons, a white and black family respectively, from Mississippi. The wise and "mild-mannered until pushed" Mose Washington is drawn into a confrontation with some white youth over the attack of a black woman, and staying true to AD, the confrontation is much deeper than the direct event. Soon there is trouble with a deplorable politician, a backwoods sheriff, and a green FBI agent.

Anderson continues to excel with memorable characters. From the southern belle Caroline "Ceedie" Davis to the fresh faced agent Jeff Wagner, he gets in the heads of his characters and brings them to life on the page. The world created here is one you are not prepared to leave when finishing the book.

He also does a masterful job with the tension and suspense. There isn't quite as much action as AD, but he skillfully works the struggle - playing it out without going overboard.

One minor disappointment is that the key character from AD, Missy Parker, is not as prominent in this book. Maybe I just fell in love with her too much, but I'd be surprised if her story was over just yet...

Anderson is not afraid of going into spiritual ideas, but it is handled with care and flows with the story. If you want to read a well-crafted, suspenseful novel, then don't let anything hold you back from the Black and White Chronicles. My only complaint? Now I have to wait until August 2007 for the next book in the series, And If I Die. Dadgummit!
Jam-Packed with Story  Feb 22, 2007

"Wedgewood Grey" plays out like a crime scene drama with facts layered upon each other while details of the situation's depth is fleshed out. Set in the south at a time when white men considered men of different skin to carry little value, and women of different skin to be worthless.

This story will likely be too gruesome for the Big Honken Chicken club, and may be a bit too scary. However, the tension and the potential of the spiritual warfare isn't so intense that you'll never sleep without a nightlight again.

"Wedgewood Grey" reminded me of early Peretti though the spiritual warfare aspect takes a backseat to Anderson's human characters. "Grey" carries a strong Christian message, with at least one character becoming born again after an encounter with a demon-possessed man.

John Aubrey Anderson crafts descriptive sentences, multiple characters, interwoven storylines and scatters the blend with wry humor.

I'm not a fan of omniscient story telling. I feel you lose the intimacy with the characters or gain too much intimacy with secondary characters who are just passing through. However, Anderson tells quite the story and manages to tie up the loose dangling threads he feeds into the mix. This impresses me, writing is not for the weak-kneed, and his cast of characters and storylines must require file upon file to keep them straight and tied together.

Compulsion to see what would happen next kept me reading, though some of the story lines didn't hold my interest as well as others and I skimmed a few times.

If you are a big fan early Peretti or you like omniscient narrated fiction with a strong Christian thread, I believe you'd enjoy "Wedgewood Grey."
Highly recommended!!  Feb 21, 2007
Evil has awakened once again in the small community around Cat Lake, Mississippi....

Mose Washington is a man of the Lord and believes in doing what is right no matter what the personal cost; this belief has already sent him to Parchman once for 5 years as a black man killing another man in the late 1950s was considered a crime regardless of the circumstances. Unfortunately, the demons haven't left Cat Lake and Mose witnesses a group of young white men viciously attacking a black mother and her son. Mose steps in, and with the help of a mysterious white stranger and a lot of prayer, now finds himself a fugitive with a young boy to raise. God has a plan, however, as the war between good and evil, between angels and demons, heats up once again.

WEDGEWOOD GREY picks up where ABIDING DARKNESS ended. If you haven't already read ABIDING DARKNESS, stop what you are doing immediately and first read that phenomenal book before starting WEDGEWOOD GREY. Readers unfamiliar with the first book may feel a bit like FBI Agent Jeff Wagner about the credibility of the events as he seeks to understand just what occurred at Cat Lake this time around. John Aubrey Anderson's powerful writing will make believers of most of those doubters, however, as he crafts a very strong story with realistic portrayals of the Christian faith.

Words simply cannot express the impact this series has on readers or the wealth of emotions conveyed. John Aubrey Anderson's almost folksy style gently draws readers into a story so poignant that you will be moved to tears on more than one occasion. This reviewer had to put WEDGEWOOD GREY down several times just to catch my breath and recompose myself as the emotions can be quite overwhelming.

While ABIDING DARKNESS focuses more on the tenets of Christianity and not becoming rigid and legalistic with those tenets, WEDGEWOOD GREY is more about prayer and developing an understanding as to why having faith is important. Mose Washington continues to demonstrate a good Christian man doing the right thing and making those tough choices. In contrast, FBI Agent Jeff Wagner is also a good man but an unbeliever. His steps towards understanding the Christian faith are important as one sees clearly through his character that simply being good isn't enough.

Part of the beauty of WEDGEWOOD GREY is the way in which the author demonstrates Christianity reaching across racial barriers. The novel is set in the 1960s prior to the Civil Rights Movement and therefore the friendships between the white and black families are a rarity. John Aubrey Anderson brings to vivid life a glimpse of hope in a time long past.

WEDGEWOOD GREY is perhaps one of the most powerful novels published today. John Aubrey Anderson has a gift at teaching about the Christian faith without being preachy or overbearing. WEDGEWOOD GREY is a touching book that will leave readers thinking about it long after the last page has been read. Thank you, Mr. Anderson, for addressing such sensitive topics with compassion and dignity. Highly recommended!
