“…the author, Khaalidah Muhammad-Ali, has me rooting for Adam and his family by the end of the book. The writing style is sharp and clear and often very funny. This is a tale of forgiveness and while there is certainly grief, it is never maudlin. More than once I found myself laughing outloud. The last few chapters, especially Adam’s redemption, are filled with grace. And even a few days after I have finished the novel, I am still thinking about the people within it.” ~ J.S. Walsh (Amazon U.S.)

 “Even though I didn’t know what to expect, I surprised myself – after reading part of the sample, I ended up reading the entire thing in one evening. It was emotionally satisfying, and I found that I came to care about some of the characters and what happened to them.” ~ Patti (Smashwords)
