This is a very engaging read that causes the reader to think about what struggles a woman goes through, especially when she loses her glory. In the case of this story, this is represented through hair. Lots of Christian messages throughout the story, and this was definitely different from any other book I have read. If you’re looking for something uplifting and thoughtful, this is the book.

This is an excellent book and I'm not just saying that because I wrote it.

What defines us? For a lot of people, like the main character, Jennifer, it's our hair. A bad hair day can put every woman in a bad mood. But this book is about more than hair; although it's the central theme throughout the book. It's about the struggles that we think define us and how our faith in God should be what's at the center of our lives. Her faith ultimately wins against all struggles.
The book was a little wordy and slow in places, but overall it was a pretty good read.

This was a different spin on a black woman's hair. It was a little hard to follow, but once I explored the whole book, it was the premise of the plot. In the time of when this book was published, men signified a woman's glory by her hair, I went through it with my own husband. But now in the era of the natural beauty, this book would be apart of the history of a woman's hair.

I have won a copy of this book from the author via Goodreads Giveaways. After I've had a chance to read it and formulate my thoughts, I'll post my honest review. Stay tuned!

What an amazing story about hairdressers who systematically try and destroy a woman's glory!

This contemporary Christian story idea is engaging as it weaves a story about a woman’s struggle when her glory, in this case her hair, is taken from her. Unfortunately sentence structure was short, making it choppy to read and there were multiple miss spelled words that were distracting. However, if you can get past the editing difficulties the author stays true to her readers by weaving Christian messages throughout the many characters of the story.

This was something different for me. I really enjoyed the premise. The idea that a hairdresser might actually do something like that deliberately never would have occurred to me. I grew up in a family that put a lot of emphasis on how you look. For reasons out of my control I also lost my glory and that made this especially powerful for me. There was a beautiful central message as well. It was eye opening and in many ways uplifting.
