Karma relocates from New York to Washington D.C, feeling like a stranger inside her own body. She is constantly depressed and unsure what to do with herself. Her Aunt Jo senses her depression and tells her she needs to seek counseling. Karma is unsure if that is what she wants but her aunt threatens her by telling her she will inform her mother of her status. Since her mother, Hyacinth, who Karma considers the ultimate drama queen, is the last person Karma wants to deal with Karma agrees to see Francis, the therapist. Though reluctant to accept therapy, Karma finds herself on a path to self-acceptance and reliance through her sessions with Francis.
The pages of Love's Troubadours take us on a spiritual, narrative journey into Karma's life. We meet her family members, loves, lovers and friends. We get to see what has formed this woman and what will sustain her. Love's Troubadours is not a breezy, easy book-of-the-month type novel. What it is, is a deep journey into what takes a woman to her lowest and what it takes for her to change her life and reach a spiritual high ground. This novel is a recommended read for all readers interested in a book that makes you think and believe.
First off, Congratulations on writing such a great book! I am a 20 year old
self-proclaimed BAP living in NYC. I got your book about 2 weeks ago and
started reading it as soon as I got it. It took me a little while to get into
it, I kept starting it and reading only a few paragraphs until I was finally
almost finished with the first chapter. Then, I finally started really reading
it yesterday and finished it this morning. I couldn't put it down until
actually I finished it! Your book was just what I needed to read at this time
in my life. I feel the need to start building a stronger relationship with God,
myself, and my immediate family, so Karma's story spoke to my heart. Apart
from the way you referenced the arts and music which gave me some ideas on new
music to purchase and meditate to, I saw a lot of myself in Karma, from her
relationship with her mom to the whole scenario with her father and her
brother. Reading the book has given me some great ideas for how to deal with
the same stresses Karma successfully dealt with and overcame. I already
practice yoga and have done journaling on and off, but I'm ready to get in
touch with my inner self. I hope I can find that inner calm Karma did once she
let everything go.
I just wanted to reach out to give you some e-moral support and say that I love
your site [...] and I absolutely loved reading your book. It's
definitely on my list of favorite books and books to share with or buy for my
younger sister. I can't wait for the other books in the series to be
released. Please continue to be a shining light leading the way to true
consciousness and serenity for us younger BAP's to follow. I appreciate
your works and efforts to be one of Love's Troubadours.
I wish you all the best and happy writing. ; )
