About the Author
Suzette D. Harrison, a west coast native and the middle of three daughters, grew up in a home where reading was required, not requested. Her literary “career” began when her poetry appeared in a volume of creative writing published by her junior high school. While Ms. Harrison pays homage to Gloria Naylor, Dr. Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, and Toni Morrison for initially inspiring her spirit and creativity, it was Alex Haley’s Roots (which she read at the age of fourteen) that unveiled the tremendous power and importance of African American literary voices. In addition to being the wife of a university professor and mother of gorgeous children, Suzette is a cupcake proprietor who loves singing gospel-with-a-hint-of-jazz. An elementary school librarian, Suzette is currently working on her next novel…in between batches of cupcakes.

First we begin with a plot filled with true African-Americana dealing with beliefs and traditions from African culture mixed with historical fiction and romance. The main character, Taffy is filed with mystery and is a true enigma in her own right. The plot thickens somewhere around 50% and is heart pounding and foot stomping until the conclusion. I am generally a fast reader, however due to the number of characters and their respective roles, I found myself slowing my reading pace so I would not get confused.
You will not see the ending coming...before you know it, you will be turning back the pages wondering...What??? Let me read that again. I recommend this book to EVERYONE!! You will not regret it.
Kudos Ms. Suzette D. Harrison - You Did the "Dang" Thing!!!!
The book's protagonist, Taffy, is a young woman who has had many bad experiences thrown at her, including marriage to a lecherous older man. Her losses are many, but her strength is undiminished as she learns how to tough things out.
Her return to her hometown and subsequent reunion with the man she intended to marry years ago unleashes a host of plot twists that makes Taffy an absorbing read. The eternal struggle of good versus evil challenges Taffy, who's gifted with second sight, and puts her at risk.
The characters are well-drawn and colourful, the setting realistic, and the storyline filled with shocking twists. After travelling with Taffy and Roam to the end of their romance, I couldn't help hoping Ms. Harrison will continue their story. If you enjoy sweeping tales that take you to a different time in history with realism and heart, then Taffy is a must read.
