Christian romance is not usually something I find pleasing to my palate. But, while perusing NetGalley, I saw a cover of a striking African American woman. I like a lot of black culture albeit authors, screenwriters or poets. Often there is a strength in faith and family that is not in every culture.
In the authors note, she explains how she received the inspiration for the book and that alone piqued my interest. The writing is very well done, the story is a grabber and I was able to finish it within 3 days. The main character is an emotional orphan. Her father died from AIDS and her mother is a crack addict, so she is raised quite unlovingly by her grandmother. Without releasing any spoilers, I will just say it was very interesting to see the outcome. That being said, one of my biggest pet peeves are books with endings like a dangling participle. If you’re telling me a story, I want to know the end. Not a “will they, won’t they”. Tell me. You’ve got me this far, whether it’s a tragic break-up, a murder suicide or if everyone lives happily-freakin-after. tell me. Finish it.
I will be reading the author’s other books and will review those as well.
