************Warning this story has intense sexual scenes and explicit language. It also can be a trigger point for victims of abuse of any kind as it deals with emotional, physical and sexual abuse. But I promise you this story is intended to inspire hope after the rain and sunshine on a cloudy day.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although this story tackled issues that may be triggers to some readers, such as abuse and rape, it was truly a story about hope, perseverance, one woman’s strength during and after the most horrific times of her life. Makaila suffered through an abusive marriage and when she finally escaped, she found herself on the streets. She wasn’t the stereotypical street walker either. She didn’t do drugs or sell her body to make a buck. She showed heart and generosity despite her poor circumstances. And when she finally got up the nerve to better herself, she found the friendship and love that she was desperate for.

There were many things I enjoyed about this story. I liked how the author described the relationships Makaila cultivated throughout her experience. Most were good and some not so much, but each connection showed the vulnerability and integrity of this woman’s character. For the most part, the language and plot were smooth and set at a good pace. I didn’t feel rushed or left to wonder what the heck was going on. Most events were detailed, clear and concise. It was easy to picture each character and visualize their interactions with each other. Despite the intensity of the drama, the pain that was an undercurrent to Makaila’s story, it was easy to enjoy this story and I found pleasure in watching her get everything that she was deserving of.
