The author evidently was not from Louisiana and doesn't know much about hurricanes. The book upset me as I felt it degraded the suffering of those people who really were on a rooftop!
This book appears to be nothing more than someones attempt(!) at sophistication and soft porn. Sorry author, this was not a winning story.
I got it for free and can not believe how bad it was!
Parts of it read like a story outline instead of a story.
Deciding to stay in Dallas, Monique lands a wonderful job. She has a great place to stay, and is the object of desire to one of the wealthiest men in the world. One who is willing to divorce his older wife just to be with her, but is it all too good to be true? Unbeknownst to Monique, she has an enemy lurking in the shadows waiting for the perfect opportunity to wreak havoc upon her life, trying to destroy all she has rebuilt.
ROOFTOP DIVA is an emotional page-turner from the beginning to the end. It gives a realistic and emotional account of Hurricane Katrina and the effects it had on its victims. With excellent character development, one would feel as though they were a part of the story--experiencing the joys and pain. Full of unexpected twists and turns, D. T. Pollard does an excellent job of helping the reader understand some of the issues many of the survivors had to overcome following Hurricane Katrina. It shows how when we reach out to one another, it could be just what one needs to put their life back together. I commend the author for tackling such a real and emotional subject. He took a chance on revisiting a horrific event, but has turned it into a wonderful story of tragedy, faith, love, strength and determination. Kudos to Mr. Pollard on a job well done.
