Overview

Bestselling author Treasure E. Blue returns with a gritty against-all-odds urban fairy tale set in the same unforgiving neighborhood as that of his breakout debut novel Harlem Girl Lost.

Desire was born on the streets of Harlem–literally. Her mom, a crack-addicted prostitute, delivered her on a bitter winter’s night after turning a trick and being brutally beaten by the john. Taken from her mother by the state, Desire grows up unwelcoming foster homes, until a local Good Samaritan takes her in. With Miss Hattie Mae’s love and Christian guidance, Desire gains confidence, joins the church choir, and discovers that she’s got a set of pipes–which soon attract the attention of hip-hop’s biggest exec.

But the road to superstardom is paved with dangers and temptations: drugged-out, violent rappers, untrustworthy pro athletes promising romance, and vicious drugs. Despite her phenomenal success and Miss Hattie Mae’s kindness, Desire seems destined for a fall from the top that will slam her back onto the pavement where her mama left her–until an unexpected angel picks her back up. . . .

This is a superb book! The book focuses on the life of a young woman's named Desire and her journey from inter-uterus drug exposure to adulthood. This is a real life and painful sight into the world of drug addiction and its use during pregnancy. The book exposes the extreme lows an individual is willing to take for the next "hit". This would be a great study for women rehabilitation programs. I highly recommend this book!!!!! The author did an excellent job!

I was recently introduced to Treasure E Blue and I really enjoy his writing. He produces true page turners. Last night I knew I needed to go to sleep, but I couldn't put this book down until I read the last word. With the way this one ended, I'm not sure if he'll continue this story or if it's the end. Way to go Treasure I'm officially a new fan!!!
