5 winners will get a paperback of Without Equal: Their Love was Without Equal by Mr. Christian C. Pauline.
“Without Equal” is based on the love story of Colby and Kathleen Cole. A charismatic couple who met in the ’60s. The story follows the couples chance meeting in San Diego, California, through their storybook romance, that started when Colby, then a 22-year-old US Marine, saw Kathleen on her front porch and said, “Hi I’m Colby Cole Jr. and I’m your future husband.” Kathleen, who was in an abusive marriage shared that with Colby, who responded, “Your heart was only on loan to him, it has always belonged to me.” Kathleen’s heart skipped a beat and it was love at first sight for both. The book follows their unmatched love story through Colby’s persistence in courting her, the “mysterious” death of her then-husband, their marriage less than three months later, and Colby’s rapid rise and role in history as he starts his own company and develops relationships with the likes of the former speaker of the house, Willie Brown, current Senator Dianne Feinstein, former IBM President Frank Cary, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, former San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, and former San Francisco City Councilman Harvey Milk. As well as the events that shaped and molded the country in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s including the assassination of Moscone and Milk, the development of the Gay Rights legislation, Brown and Feinstein’s political rise, the tech world explosion, the birth of cable broadcasting and the homeless epidemic in the Bay Area. However more than anything, the book focuses on the unmatched, never-ending love of Colby and Kathleen. From poor to rich, from being healthy to being sick, as their family grows and they rise as an African American family of wealth and prominence, that love, never changes.
