    "Three pages & hooked!" It is very rarely that a sample chapter with only three pages could make me laugh so hard and be so engaged. I just got through watching the new pilot proceeding "Girlfriends" and the guy who couldn't catch the football reminds me of the Adonis in this book. From the first sentence, I feel like I want to meet him! And the narrator's voice? This author is great at being real to her characters and true to their souls. Great job!

    "So much drama, June 13, 2006" Reviewer: The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers (RAWSISTAZ.com) - See all my reviews Kenya Curtis was the daughter of Renita Baker who was married to a man named Lecherous. He lived up to his name and molested Kenya. At age 12, when Kenya had all she could take, she ran away to live with her Aunt Sierra and Uncle Rodney. Years later she pressed charges against Lech, as he was called, and he went to prison and Renita went ballistic. Kenya received counseling, went to college and married a wonderful man, but her past continued to haunt her; she was known as a difficult person. It didn't help that her in-laws were also hard to get along with. A family crisis comes when her beloved uncle needs a bone marrow transplant. All the family comes together and the fireworks start. Kimberly Clark has written a dynamic novel that explores family relationships, deep emotional scars and the triumph over pain and disaster. The characters are well developed and occasionally...

A bit more editing would have made this an even better read. I am looking forward to reading more books by Ms. Clark. Reviewed by Alice Holman of The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers< Less

    "What if your Momma doesn’t want to hear it?" 3 stars Kenya Curtis has a wonderful life on the outside but torments on the inside. The one person whom she despises and truly has a hatred for resurfaces and causes her once semi-settled emotions to still burn raw even though it has been 20 years since those ill-fatal times. No one could have told Kenya that the abuse she experienced as a little girl would ultimately shape her relationship with her husband, mother and in-laws. Although she enlists the help of her therapist and BFF, Lana, Kenya still treads an uphill battle. Malik Curtis tries to be as helpful to his wife as possible. He knows that she has had a troubling childhood and tries to be supportive by not talking about it. Her moody and sometimes insane ways causes him to desperately try to give Kenya materialistic values instead of family values. Malik turns to his overzealous mother, Gillian and his bothersome sister Tanisa for support. Sierra Baker is the... More > golden child. Her mother and father made sure that she obtained the education to make something of herself. Sierra passed that same idea to her troubled niece Kenya. Not knowing whether her husband Rodney would adapt to the situation, she went full fledge into providing Kenya with the best of everything. Renita Henderson is tired of always being the outcast and the black sheep. Everyone is always looking after Kenya. Even though Kenya is her daughter by blood, her sister Sierra stepped up and raised her. No one told Kenya to leave and make up lies. Renita loves her husband Lech and will not let Kenya or anyone else come between the only one who has truly believed in her. I applaud Kimberly Clark in her efforts to bring abuse to the forefront. No one knows what the other goes through unless they are in the situation and sometimes do and say unpleasant things. Nevertheless, the editing was not the greatest and by the end of the story I was wondering if there would be a part 2 for the unresolved issues related in the book. Reviewed by: LaDonna< Less
