A Triumph of Will
1942. Willís brother is fighting the war in the Pacific, but Will is
forced to remain behind. Will takes his brotherís place in the
academic world of Indiana University, where he meets two students
and two soon-to-be-legendary men who will change his life forever.
Will thought he was the only boy attracted to other males, but when
he sneaks into Professor Kinseyís marriage course he realizes his
mistake. Will meets Ben, who he suspects is not unlike himself. When
his suspicions are confirmed, the pair begins an awkward, halting
relationship of self-discovery and love.
Will is shocked that Negroes attend IU. Heís leery and afraid of
Adam, but becomes ashamed of his prejudice when he comes
face-to-face with the discrimination Adam faces daily. Together,
Will, Adam, and a powerful ally join to subtly and surreptitiously
integrate IU. But, just as changes for the better come, Will is
faced with prejudice much closer to home, prejudice that can only be
banished by tragedy.
A Will to Triumph is a story of friendship, ignorance, fear, and the
power of knowledge and love to make the world a better place.
