Rose was married to Donavan, who was a very abusive husband. She didn’t finish school and she got pregnant early. He wanted to keep her down and be the breadwinner of the family. She runs away with her daughter Crystal and heads to New York where her uncle Myles and his wife Wendy live. In New York she gets reacquainted with a guy she knew from high school in Jamaica, Calvin. Donovan, seeing that Rosie has moved forward with her life and she finished her college degree, knew she wasn’t going to come back to him and makes a move. There is a confrontation, and some truths are revealed. Sandra Ottey’s “Runaway Comeback” is a great book. It flows well and it is very interesting, holding readers’ attention from page one until the end. The title is very appropriate and it is explained well in the end of the book. It has some nice, unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers wanting more. I can’t want to read the next book in this series. Reviewed by: KaTina
Ok, so i thought the first book was good but this one was phenomenal!!!! A terrific follow- up to the first book.... the way the writer was able to go forward with the story and briefly put in excerpts from the first to remind you of what this girl went thru was excellent... the writer has a real talent for this.. good luck and I'm waiting for your next project!!!!
