Awesome story!!

I am so proud of you for this book! You've taken personal events and made them public. The way you conveyed your situations and hardships are impressive and I'm glad to know you. Somethings were hard to read as they seemed so spot on with things of my past but I truly enjoyed it. Can't wait for part 2!!!

Excellent storytelling!!

Although thus is a truly heartbreaking story it is well written and need to be read by all women and men alike. This book had me questioning situations and things about my own life past and present. I cannot wait for the second installment. Matter of fact I stopped reading for a couple days because I didn't want it to end. Great job!

This book was absolutely very well written. Author E.N. Hardy is definitely talented with the pen. This book had me glued to the pages, it was very hard to put down. The more I read, the more I want to continue because I just had to know what was going to happen next. How was she going to deal with this or that? What was she going to be up against next? This book had me thinking about my own past & recent encounters that I’ve had to deal with myself.

Essence endured so much throughout her lif

This book was definitely a page turner. From beginning to end I was on the edge of my seat wondering what's next. Essence went through so much however no matter how hopeless her situation seemed she kept on pressing forward. A definite must read!
