Billy Ray Matthias is the handsome younger son of the church's new pastor. Benny Freeman is the daughter of an oil rich family.

Billy Ray is convinced that Benny is the woman God would have him settle down with. Benny recently had her heart broken, so she's not the least bit interested in getting involved anytime soon. As Billy's pursuit of Benny intensifies, so does the political and social climate in the prosperous African American neighborhood known as the Greenwood District. Racial tensions in Tulsa escalate when Dick Rowland, a black man, is accused by a local newspaper of sexually assaulting Sarah Page, a white woman. Benny's brother, Ethan, and radical white attorney Maynard Vaughn put their weight and energy behind helping Dick, despite continuous threats. Meanwhile, the White Glove Society, a racist group seeks to destroy not only Dick but all the African Americans in this successful black-owned community.When tensions come to a head and violence breaks out, Billy and Benny are caught up in the heat of chaos. He vows to keep her safe, but will Benny let him?

A historical romance novel set in the 1920s in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Son of a Preacherman depicts the highly segregated life of African Americans in the Greenwood District, in Northern Tulsa and the tensions leading up to the Tulsa Race Riots.
