Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ola Vay is a writer with heart, character, and raw sensual appeal. Her style is eclectic, timeless, classical, hip-n-flip, and soul-stirring. She is a 27 year-old divorcee, mother of two, single parent, and freelance writer in Tulsa. From her own experiences, and others she has learned to use fictional writing as the vehicle for self-expression in literary art form. Her work inspires and encourages others to prevail regardless of the odds. Her characters come to life as the stories explode on paper, and stir in your mind like real living people. Ms. Vay masters her craft of understanding people, opening the heart, and allowing us to use our minds to familiarize and identify with her characters. Beauty Of A Black Woman is the first of many novels, short stories, and poems to come to the public entertainment. She loves to spend the remainder of her time playing and planning activities with her children, reading, sewing, exploring the arts & humanities scenes.

Format: Paperback
I had no idea of the pain and anguish both the abuser and victim must go thru in the wake of a sexual or abusive crime. My wife recommended reading this book on the sexual imagination the heroine's boyfriend used to seduce her. But as i read i felt like i was actually there experiencing the whole ordeal. I talk more to my children now...i wouldn't want anyone to have to go thru such a terrible event in their lives. Beauty isn't just about a black woman, but a woman with alot of heart and guts to stand up and speak out about a very hush-hush topic, child molestation.

Of writing in today's forum of new and up and coming authors, particularly Afro-American authors. This is a great read, and it would be a shame to miss out on Ms. Vay's talent as a realistic storyteller.
