Student Nurse Kevin Fraser is enjoying a night out with friends when he hears this incredible voice singing on stage. Owen Hicks is the Cherokee version of Elvis, including the famous hip movements. Unfortunately, Owens’s voice is almost permanently silenced by out of control diabetes. 

Graceland is a realistic illustration of just how deadly diabetes can be if not taken seriously. Kevin is a compassionate man who works at the hospital to support his education cost. Owen is an average man with a minor self-esteem problem, in addition to a major sweet tooth. When Owen is brought in to the emergency room, it is Kevin who is able to calm Owen. What started out as a comfortable friendship slowly evolved into love. Along with dealing with the disease, there is a social status issue, as well as racial tensions, among members of both Owen and Kevin’s family. The secondary characters add a touch of humor to the plot.  

Ally Blue has created a remarkable health awareness saga that I enjoyable immensely.
