novel, you will meet four friends with shattered souls. In the
opening chapter we are introduced to Britton, taking a break from
life in the Dominican Republic; Damascus the gyrating, dancing gigolo
who does more than his share of bed hopping; Indera the risk taker
who owns a successful beauty salon and loves giving the fellas
attitude; lastly, Chyna who is educated, married and the mother of
four and living the life or is she? From the outside, all four of
these adults appear to be living the life, but if we took the time to
peel away some of the layers, would we find happiness or lost souls?
It is very rare that I can read a book with four main characters and
not lose focus. Dywane D. Birch did an excellent job of giving the
reader exactly what we needed to get to know the characters and feel
their abuse and pain. Each of them was abused and as I read their
story, I cried. I cried for their pain and cried in prayer that they
would survive. My only issue with the book was the font, it could've
been one point larger. This book made me angry at the injustices in
this world against children. Everyone needs to read this eye-opening novel, and I look forward to further works by this author.
Britton Landers runs away from his problems to the Dominican Republic but finally decides to face his past ghosts from childhood that made him begin to run in the first place. Indera Fleet, my girl because she gave cheating men what they deserved, is true and real to everyone but somehow she lied and degraded herself with her vengeful nature. Now, I gotta admit, she gave some people what they deserved but she took it to the extreme. We all know a Damascus Miles (well maybe some of us) but this brother finally realizes why he had to have one woman coming in and another going out the back door. Chyna Littles character bored me until she got with "the real" and stepped up to her ungrateful, psychotic daughter only after her daughter scratched the surface of a festering wound within her by calling her white.
Definitely a must-read if you enjoy racy, suspenseful novels that have you laughing at one moment and surprised and disgusted the next. -NM
This is a story of four friends who have had their own personal struggles, but they are still able to survive. They deal with their issues and try to accept their past. They are able to express their opinions and feelings and still remain friends. This book gives you an idea of how true friendship really can be.
I would and I did recommend it to our book club. This was a really good book.
