Book Review Alert: A Time To Love A Time To Hate

Book Review Alert: A Time To Love A Time To Hate  Author: Tracey D. Harris Published: November 9, 2020 Publisher:     ISBN: 978-1839455483 Rating: 4 I found this story very captivating and I felt as though I could feel the characters emotions, thoughts and actions throughout the book. In this book readers have the opportunity to see how love truly conquers all even hate. I found myself gasping for air as the author was very descriptive in how she depicted the raw emotions of the main characters. I would recommend this book for a cultural awareness course or even for a young adult who may wonder about loving someone from the opposite side of the fence and color. I would love to see a part two or a trilogy for this phenomenal piece.  (Reviewed by Harmony Rayne)

Her best friend, Jenel, has been pushing her dear friend, Victoria, to add some love spice to her life. However, her heart has been broken. Years ago, the father of her children ended the relationship when she was pregnant and he has been a deadbeat dad ever since. Giving her heart to another man was not in the cards.
