The tale of two sisters overcoming obstacles found in a negectful household.
This is a compelling, yet endearing chronicle which details the lives of two girls joined together by love, life's struggles and secrets only sisters could share. The story is told by Nicole Morgan, who has forgiven and has tried to forget her tormented childhood existence.
Wanda McKiver has struggled with the fact that where this book is categorized as "fiction", it rings true in the African American household and often times then not, ignored and shunned.
As with her debut novel, The Black Rose Diaries, Ms. McKiver's prayer is that it touches the heart, soul and more importantly the mind of the reader and incites awareness and change.
This book will bring you to depths that you never thought you could enter through a literary work. Fortunate for you, after completing the read, you can continue your everyday life. Unfortunately, those who have endured the horror portrayed in Beautiful will forever live it, even if it's through memories.
