A really good story on how pain can be spread generation to generation and what it takes to forgive. I enjoyed this book immensely. The writer's style is flowing and her words were touching. A recommended read.

This was an okay book. The story flowed very well. The storyline was good. Just not a lot of depth to the story or characters. It had some good Christian lifestyle references and a few bible verses. This story was about a generational curse between a grandmother, daughter, and grand daughter. I was glad to see that their eyes were opened to the pattern and enjoyed their journey to letting go of that curse.I would've liked to have seen how the changes took place with Tia, Lorenzo, and Serenity. ...more

Found this book to be an easy read. The premise was good and having worked in the social work field felt it was pretty realistic in its portrayal. Knowing this was a Christian read I expected that influence, but still thought there were too many scriptures quoted. Otherwise it was a pretty good book, especially for a first novel. 3 stars

Slow Read

great concept...but could have been opened up more. Davis withdrawal from her husband and abuse of her child does not explain Ida or Henry behavior....but, Jesus is the answer.

Good book with a powerful storyline. An original plot that pulled me in within the couple of pages. Too many scriptures. Pulled me away. Lost interest did not finish.

It was an okay book. I didnt like how it ended. There should have been a last chapter where the mother and grandmother meet the baby and give some words of wisdom to Tia.
