Overview

Roxane Brissett is a successful psychotherapist with her own practice in the heart of Manhattan...with her own set of problems, like the clients she counsels through therapy sessions. She cannot stand her Aunt Nadine, who raised her and her brother, Kenny, after the death of their mother. She's also dating, Maurice Walker, a smooth-talking investment broker, whose evasive lifestyle is suddenly revealed.

When Roxane sets out to help two women, in particular, whose lives have been violently disrupted by domestic abuse, she finds herself wrapped up in their affairs as she attempts to get their lives back on track. Only to discover, she's the one who seriously needs some help. She encounters Blade Tyson, a highly acclaimed lawyer known for taking cases on a pro-bono basis. Roxane finds herself intrigued by Blade and realizes he could very well be the right man for her, considering what they have in common. Blade, on the other hand, is determined to make her his woman.

As events begin to unfold, a tragic happening takes place. Roxane fights within herself to contain the tainted past that haunts her.

Roxanne Brisset is the epitome of strength as far as her younger brother Kenneth is concerned. Roxanne is a psychotherapist and the strongest kindest person he knows. Kenneth, ten years her junior, has no memory of their mother. The only relationship with their father has been talking to him from jail. Roxanne is holding onto a family secret that she wants to share with Kenneth. She just has no way of telling him. Always extending herself, she does everything she can for him and her clients. Going beyond the call of duty, she even does house calls. When everything comes crashing in on her, will she continue to have strength through it all or will she crumble?

I really enjoyed this story. The author shows us how to turn a bad situation into something that works for us all. She explains the effects child abuse can have on us as adults and how when you finally forgive you can live again. I recommend this story. Ms. Goins' A Woman Scorn'd is a job well done.
