Last Rose of Summer is everyone's story. A story that embraces anyone who ever lived in a neighborhood, or feared a bully or ever wanted to love. It is a story about the extraordinary richness of ordinary-seeming people. On a journey to adulthood Carlos Jackson starts learning the art of living after he suddenly becomes smitten by Kamara, a young girl who visits her aunt next door. At a picnic, she places a single rose petal into Carlos’ hand and from this day on, roses follow Carlos through life until the last rose comes. Yet his enthrallment leads him into conflict with Blue Joe Davis, the neighborhood bully. And when he is left heartbroken by Kamara’s unexpected departure, Uncle Dan, an enigmatic old man from across the hall, comes to Carlos’ rescue. Unbeknownst to the neighborhood, Uncle Dan is the grandson of a Yoruba warrior and a master of Capoeira. Becoming the old man’s apprentice Carlos learns Capo-Kung, a martial arts hybrid reflecting art, beauty, harmony, patience, and integrity. Years later, Carlos and Kamara are reunited but Blue Joe also re-emerges bringing a new level of conflict. Set largely in the historic 1960’s, the story moves with Carlos through the urban streets of Cleveland and the lives of its colorful neighborhood folks, to war-torn rice fields of Vietnam and even further to far flung regions of Timbuktu. Sometimes you’ll be Carlos, sometimes, Kamara, and even Blue Joe perhaps. The story will surprise you. Its host of characters will delight you. It will sneak into your mind and heart. It will make you laugh and weep. Soulfully told with spectacular clarity, Last Rose of Summer flows like music you love. American writer Muhyiddin Shakoor, in his fresh and electrically exciting novel, is inviting us to row our boats gently down the stream and see that life truly is a dream.

In the summer of 1929, three strong-willed women, related by marriage, gather under one roof: widowed matriarch Maude Hennesey, whose belief in old-fashioned ways is shared by the ladies of her club; her pretty, spoiled daughter Rachel; and daughter-in-law Marie, who’s been forced by her husband, Harry, to uproot their two small children and take up residence in his family’s East Texan home until economic circumstances improve. Monte Schulz, son of celebrated Peanuts cartoonist Charles Schulz, examines not only the conflicts within the family, but the racial, gender and religious tensions of small-town Bellemont. As the summer wears on, Maude firmly lectures the unwelcome Marie on class distinctions, Rachel fights and flirts with her dashing pilot beau CW, and Marie reevaluates her marriage to salesman Harry during their separation, while fending off her employer Jimmy Delahaye’s slow seduction. Meanwhile, storms gather as a child’s unnatural death sends shock waves throughout the community, instilling a sense of dread in both the reader and Marie, who’s already lost her firstborn to tragedy. Things come to a head when a black war hero, Julius, is accused of murder: surprising truths about these three women are revealed. In the calm after the storm, each woman learns to live her life on her own terms. Schulz’ dynamic female characters, though accessible to a wide audience, have particular appeal for women. Schulz understands that readers find it refreshing when authors flesh out their protagonists by examining who they are through the prism of familial interactions, not just romantic relationships. Contemporary readers can identify with many of the issues that wife and parent Marie struggles with in The Last Rose of Summer, even though (and, perhaps, because) it concludes just as the Jazz Age is poised to shift into the Great Depression.
