This novel is a def a winner!!! read this book less than two day, This book was outstanding!
The hardest part of being a parent is watching your children make the same mistakes you made and not being able to do a single thing to stop it.

"Generational Curses" is a novel that unfortunately a lot of young African American males and females will be able to relate to. The characters in this book will mirror their lives or the lives of someone they know. I was able to relate to one of the minor characters and after reading The story revolves around a young college student name Cynthia and her attempts to juggle her family, personal and professional life while living in Atlanta.

A very good read...disappointed with the ending so hopefully there's a part two.
As a parent, I can relate to this book. Good parents want the best for their kids. Cynthia's mother was no different. I don't want to spoil the story, so I'll just say that the characters were well developed and the story was believable. I'm originally from Beaufort, SC so I could relate to the Savannah, GA references.
