More About the Author

Married at sixteen, a mother twice by seventeen, and thrice a mother and divorced by twenty-four, Adrienne Thompson is no stranger to adversity. Not your typical teenage mother, she went on to complete her college degree and to earn her nursing license. She attributes God's faithfulness as the catalyst for her success in life. Now, having raised two children as a divorced mother, with a third fast-approaching adulthood, she is sharing a long hidden talent and passion with the world. Using the lessons that life has so expertly taught her as a guideline (betrayal, abusive relationships, self-esteem issues, witnessing the deteriorating effects of drug abuse), she has created stories that will both entertain and inspire the reader.

Adrienne currently resides in Arkansas with her daughter. Formerly an RN, she now writes and publishes her stories full time. She is also a motivational speaker.

I cannot believe how wonderful this book is. When I started reading, I didn't want to put it down. I finished in just a few hours. I hated to read the last page, because this is a book I could read for a long time. I cannot wait for your next book. Thanks Adrienne!

BEEN SO LONG.....This book was soo good!!! I could not put it down and could not wait until my next break at work to read some more! Let me just say that Mona-Lisa, is a good, caring,sensitve, single mother! She thinks that she has all she wants and needs in life. Until something or someone from past throws a monkey wrench in and HONEYYYYY.....Mentally slaps the SUGAHONEYICETEA...outta her! Does Mona-Lisa find out that her life was built merely on lust? I mean life and death does lie in the tongue! She also learns that Prayer can and will change things and God will restore! The twist at the end of the book was great, it left me saying....really...Thompson, you gonna do me like that....lol? Plz, pick up this book and put your reviews on here to help others out!!!!

Even though I am single and of a certain age, I found this story quite compelling. From the first chapter I was with Mona-Lisa. She was wrong about a few things but she was always a good mother. Been So Long was a wonderful story to read.

This was such an good book! This wasn't your typical "Home Wrecking Mistress" storyline. This storyline was soo much more than that and had much more depth to it than that. This is a story about Mona- Lisa who fell in love at first sight with Wasif back in college even though she was already in a relationship with Corey. But, due to Corey's discipline and focus on school even though they were in a relationship her feelings for him never went beyond "friend". So fast forward 14 - 15 years later and we now find Mona-Lisa with teenage twin boys from Wasif. Whom is married to someone else but really truly does love Mo more than his wife, and lives a double life with two separate families. Mona-Lisa is happy with her life the way things are...... until someone comes into her life and show her that she is actually living the same life on the lines as her mother did. And forces her to relive memories she has taken years to supress & to see her life for what is really is leaving the question of "Is This The Life She Really Wants To Live?" Hope this review aids you in your decision to by the book.

Despite editing errors this was a good story about a young Black woman with a history of childhood neglect and poverty who escapes her memories by settling for the good life with a man she meets and becomes pregnant by while in college. She falls for this exotic man who is rich, kind and ultimately marries another woman while keeping her on the side. The story begins 15 years later when now with two boys, a home, luxuries and the role of mistress she realizes that she has settled for far less than she could have had. When an old friend reenters her life she realizes how much she has sacrificed just to live a comfortable life. The revelations are heartbreaking and you find yourself saddened by the choices she continues to make and the impact of those choices on others. I would categorize this as light Christian fiction. It is a good discussion book for women.

I'd downloaded this book weeks ago, but didn't get around to reading it until this morning... and I read it all the way through. It was absolutely fantastic! Well written, well paced, great characters, great conflict (especially with the school bullying), real emotions (a little bit too much crying - but it was understandable). I just really, really enjoyed this title. Excellent work!

Been so Long was simply Great!! I give it a 6 and I know the scale is one out of five. You won't regret buying it. I read the book in two days and found that it was a easy read. Ms. Thompson also visited my bookclub Divas Leaving no Pages unturned on yesterday for a Live Discussion of the book and we all agree that this book was a Great read for everyone. We also enjoyed the characters in the book. I can't wait to read future books by Ms. Thompson!!!
