You can shed light and understanding on people and circumstances that sometimes we may be quick to judge and not exert understanding.
Also, I like the ability to control the outcome of things that are normally out of my control.
ALSO, I'm a long winded person by nature. When you write the more context around your point, the better it's understood. (less)

You know, when life gives you lemons, you're supposed to make lemon curd. Some how I seem to have forgotten my way around the kitchen. Life has been throwing lemons at me, HARD.

Carey Anderson Help, I need an honest review of my book, "At Last". How do I find someone to review my book?

At Last, is a Urban Fiction book set in the late 40's - early 60's in the San Francisco Bay Area. This story is about a family ahead of it's time. The Wallace's unlike their southern roots believe that all people are equal. The Wallace's are a well to do family that dabble in some not so straight forward practices.
Annette was born and raised in Kansas until her father was suddenly killed. Her Aunt Dorothy sent for Annette's family to come to California for something better.
Tim falls in love with Annette the moment he lays on her, and where Tim doesn't see color when he looks at Annette, he soon finds that color is the first thing everyone else see when they look at him. Most people, even Annette, question why this handsome white man loves Annette so much.

If you are interested in reviewing this BWWM Urban Fiction Novel please contact me as soon as possible. Please and thank you.
