It took me two years to write my book and now that it’s out I need to stat on my second one. I wasn’t expecting people to come to me asking me to speak in their groups or at their school. Every review is exciting but this on in the UK gave me the confidence to believe in my writing. I AM AN AUTHOR!!!

This review is from:
Sapphire~Escape (Kindle Edition) I could not put this book down. It’s tone is dispassionate, not because the author disassociates herself from the narrative, but because it is simple telling of the facts.
It is beautifully written and left me desperate for the next instalment.
Having read other true stories I expected to feel pity for the main character, instead a sense of this ladies strength and fortitude comes through. The narrative teases you with hints of what is to come, and at times you read with a sense of dread, not wanting to go further, but compelled to see it through.
The author gives all the characters a fullness to their personalities, so that everyone is part of the story and there are no two dimensional filler characters to the tale. Even the rendering of ‘Bill’ imparts fully the impact that such a short interlude can make on a person.
In short, I’d recommend this book to every one.
Maybe it’s because I came to it without a negative impression of strippers, I always thought women who take their clothes off for money were courageous, and this is the first time I’ve seen them actively referred to a ‘Hustlers’ in a positive way, but I loved this book and feel like I need to know hat happens next in Sapphires life. The hints at the obstacles to come, and the complex relationships involved have left me wanting more.
There are so many levels to this book that I could talk about it all day, but if all you really want to know is if you should read it too then the answer is hell yes!
