    Karma Comes Full Circle

    Myra Danforth is looking for the cloud with a silver lining and she thinks she may have found it. Growing up Myra had seen and done more than many adults as the only child of an addict that was willing to do anything for that next hit. When she's accepted to St. John's University, she feels that is her ticket to happiness. <BR/><BR/>Milton Roberts too has experienced some things no child (or adult) should. He was raised in a house full of mistreatment and disdain. The prospect of being picked up in the NFL draft is all he has to hold on to. <BR/><BR/>Two shattered souls. Two victims of abuse. Two aching hearts. One ulterior motive. One has taken all the hard knocks and only wants to be loved at any cost, while the other had bottled up those feelings and has a hardened heart and soul. Can karma rectify their situations? <BR/><BR/>A new voice in urban fiction has arisen. Amaleka artfully contrives a gritty tale of karma that keeps readers on edge until the end. I have to say Quanda, Myra's best friend, was my favorite character. Would love to read a full novel about her. Hint...hint...hint. <BR/><BR/>Reviewed by: Toni

    a goob book making its way to the top

    I read this book before and I have to admit this is the greatest book I have ever read because it is full of mysteries and everything. alot of people is making books about ponys and other stuff but thiis is something real I almost cried when I found out all the things that was going on with Myra and Milton that is some crazy stuff right there but it is realistic,that is something going on now and days and we have to be aware of it.my favorite part was at the end because all of Myra's hard work finally paid off and there is a theme right there NEVER GIVE UP no matter what all of the people that can relate to this be strong and something good will happen to you and make sure u stay away from drugs and I am only 12 yrs old but it is still good advice

    What goes around comes around

    Myra Danford born a child of circumstance grew up in a house of neglect and abuse. Her father abandoned her mother Vidal when Myra was very young and she turned to drugs for comfort shortly thereafter. At the age of ten she was forced to turn tricks to support her mother¿s drug habits. With the love and caring of her best friend Quanda, Myra persevered and graduated from high school at the head of her class while earning a full four year scholarship to St. Johns University. While in college, a very naive Myra meets future NFL prospect Milton Roberts and falls hard for him. Milton promises Myra the world and the dream of being a wealthy wife of an NFL player. However, Milton a victim of child molestation has his own painful childhood memories that still haunt him. With his draft status on the line, Milton is being blackmailed with a terrible secret. Milton's life quickly takes a turn for the worst and he ends up using Myra for his own cunning reasons and Myra unknowingly is along for the ride. Before long, Milton¿s secret is exposed and Myra finds herself in a web of deceit, betrayal and murder. A Twisted Tale of Karma, the debut novel of Ms. Amaleka McCall, is the best book I¿ve read this year. It teaches the true meaning of karma ¿what goes around comes around¿. The storylines were real and very well put together. Ms. McCall touched on the harsh realities of neglect and child abuse. This book was definitely a page turner and will have you on the edge of your seat anticipating what is going to happen next. Ms. McCall is an outstanding storyteller/writer and I look forward to possibly a sequel and hopes of reading more books by her in the very near future.

    She did a great job !

    To be completely honest, when me and my niece met this author you could see her dreams awaiting to become a reality. I was positive the book would be terrible, but with her power to persuade, we bought it. It was one of the best. Better than Crackhead that is with Triple Crown Productions.
