This is an emotional and heart-touching story about a girl who holds the weight of her parents abusive relationship. It’s a story that is wonderfully written and it truly touched my soul!
The book sends a message of how to overcome self-hate and addictions.
“Everything I went through made me who I am today. You will experience my highs, my lows, my pain and my growth.” The author Rochelle Richey uses strong and powerful words and to be honest – once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down.
I would definitely recommend it to my friends!
A Black Rose Thrived:
A personal memoir reflecting the conquest of
overcoming sexual and physical abuse, drug addictions,
infidelity, rejection and self hate.
This book is about the possible effects that can occur in one’s life when born or raised in a dysfunctional environment. An environment that doesn’t offer a blueprint or structured foundation that is needed to be successful in a dominating world.
Although success is very attainable, one must be able to survive, strive and thrive to obtain it. This book is about choices and consequences. It’s about taking ownership. Removing the mask and literally owning your mess.
To some, this book will be a mirror and to others, it will be a reflection. Reflecting back on unresolved issues, bringing them to the forefront and forcing a healthy intimate confrontation. To some this book will be a conviction, to others it will bring hope. To some, it will be a revelation and a sweet comfort in knowing that you were not the only one.
Overall this book is a selfless, honest, heartfelt, well-penned book of intense drama and inspiration. I stand naked and unashamed which for me, was the first step in my healing.
