Overview

Momma, Please Forgive Me! Abuse, destruction, compassion, love, trust and death all equal up to a spellbinding formula that takes place in the novel; Momma, Please Forgive Me. This formula adds up to everything a reader will need in order to fill them with great compassion and emotion. This formula will have them crying, praying, forgiving and giving thanks to God. This fictional story describes how a mother went to great lengths to save herself and her children at the cost of murder! Momma, Please Forgive Me! is a fictional drama that depicts the length of what a woman will do to keep her children safe.
Momma, Please Forgive Me! deals with the subject of domestic violence and abuse. This novel tells a fictional story of how an African-American mother does the unthinkable, kills her abusive husband in order to protect herself and her children. It also shows the effect of how domestic violence not only affects the victim, but the entire family. In Momma, Please Forgive Me!, La Vonne Brown, the main character, takes readers down a path of why she made the describes she did which ended up causing her family more pain than offer solutions.
In Momma, Please Forgive Me!, author Toi Moore went the extra mile by including domestic violence statistics, along with twenty-four hour a day help hotline phone numbers at the end of my book. In doing this, she especially wanted the silent victims, who are afraid to speak out about their situation, have the opportunity of confidentially seeking help on their own.
Author Toi Moore is personally attached to this story because she grew up in a family that was plagued with the devastating reality of domestic abuse. This abuse affected several generations in her family until she broke the cycle. When she was only six years old, she was the child hiding behind the doors and walls, listening to the harsh sounds her mother’s fragile body endured from the powerful blows given to her by her step-father. Now, as an adult, the horrifying thoughts, visions and sounds still remain deep within her mind, never to be forgotten or accepted.
This novel has been endorsed by several celebrities such as: Vivica A. Fox, Mya, James Ingram, Patrice Rushen and T.C. Carson to name a small few. This story has also received rave reviews from adults and teenagers. Numerous parents have reported that their teenagers, who commonly hate to read, are dedicating several long hours reading Momma, Please Forgive Me! Then, they are highly recommending the book to friends, increasing sales. The EUR Internet magazine has compared Toi Moore to originally self published celebrities like; E. Lynn Harris and Omar Tyree.
This book also sheds a light on how domestic violence is considered as a silent killer and why it should be stopped! After reading my book, it will shed more details and understanding as to why my main character did what she did in order to save herself and her children.
