Book Description

Facing adversity from every angle, Ebony experienced and witnessed things no child should. With a crack addicted mother, an incarcerated father and a devoutly Christian grandmother—whose disdain for her could not go unnoticed—there was never anyone to protect her. From sexual and physical abuse to rape and spousal abuse as an adult, Ebony has endured too much pain for far too many years. After narrowly escaping an abusive boyfriend, protecting her son and getting her life on track is her main priority. Will Ebony find happiness and the peace she deserves or will she remain a victim of her past?

Let Ebony take you on her journey to mental freedom.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My experience writing this book was to say the least, emotional. The events that went on in Ebony's/the main characters life were realistic, heart breaking and raw. Ebony's story will tug at your heart strings as you'll want to protect this girl and slap some sense into her at the same time. It is a completely different read from my other work. The Darker the Berry the Deeper the Roots is drama filled and more realateble to a lot of readers. I wrote the book and I myself am deeply moved whenever I read it. I am proud of this debut and I hope to touch many lives from it.

All i can say is Wowwww! Ms. Queen Brown definately did her thing!! This story as told through the eyes of young Ebony,Took me on a ride that i never wanted to end! It told of the struggles of a young girl who had to navigate through life for the most part on her own, and was desperatly seeking the love and acceptance that always seemed to elude her. I mean i laughed, i cried and i sometimes wanted to throw my kindle! The hardships and abuse she had to endure were heartbreaking at times and i found myself wondering, how could anyone continue to go on after all of that?? I also found myself seriously wanting to hurt that damn Jonah! He was a hot mess and deserved what he had coming to him... Anyway woosah... Lol, so grab this book up ASAP but strap on your seatbelt! Its going to be a hell of a ride Through Ebony's world!! Keep doing you Ms. Queen, and i look forward to reading what you have cooked up for us next! Peace and Blessings <3

5.0 out of 5 stars The Darker The Berry The Deeper The Roots June 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow, where do I begin? " The Darker The Berry, The Deeper The Roots" by Queen Brown explores various levels of sexual, physical,verbal, and emotional abuse. Join Ebony as she blossoms from a young girl into a woman and everything in between.
This book brought out a wide range of emotions in me. From laughing to crying to shock, it definitely kept me on my toes. It started off a little bit slow but quickly picked up. I was rooting for Ebony the entire time! Needless to say, this novel gets a 5 star from me! Can't wait to see what's nect from Author Queen Brown!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED THIS BOOK:) June 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All I can say is wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved this book:) It started out a little slow, but it wasn't long before I was hooked. The story chronicles a young lady named E (Ebony)and her life experiences. She has a turbulent relationship with her family where she is treated horribly. As she grows up she goes through a few relationships with guys that I fell in love with. These relationships shaped her into a woman and from that she grew. There was love, betrayal, domestic violence, manipulation,family problems, resentment and triumph....all wrapped in one 5 star banger. I loved how this story was told the author made sure she told every detail and didn't leave a thing out about Ebony's life...I cant wait for part 2! If you haven't read this book all I can say is "WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR"....Please DO NOT sleep on this novel!

5.0 out of 5 stars FULL OF DRAMA June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book that I've read by Queen Brown and I wasn't disappointed. I think every teenage girl should read this book to learn what not to deal with in a relationship. Ebony comes from a family that has more than its share of issues but deep down they are good people. This young girl has to face challenges that no child should have to deal with. While living on the street she me meets MR. WRONG and her life takes turns she never imagined.

This story will show just how easy it is to get into the wrong relationship and how difficult it is to get out. Ebony was fully aware that this was a bad situation but was so afraid to break free. Even down to the end I feared that she would make the wrong decision but finally she saw the light.

Great story, I'm looking forward to more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars SPEECHLESS May 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I finally got my hands on this book I couldn't put it down. The details were so real, you could literally picture every incident that occurred and it just left me speechless. I've never been in a situation like the main character was in so it's hard for me to say what she should've done and I'm upset it took her that long to get out but I'm glad she finally did. I'm curious to see if Jonah's punishment will stick...on to the next book in this series.
