Voiceless - Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

By: Ron Castro

Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

Neveah is now inside "her lady", and Diana is excited to be preagnant, but she knows Diego won't be happy with having to share her now. Neveah doesn't like how the "mean voice" is treating her lady, and after Diego beats on Diana and causes her to go into labor, Neveah fears for herself and her mommy. Diego promises to be better and offers to watch Neveah while Diana works, but is he a changed man and trying to be a better dad, or is it a front so he can get rid of the baby once and for all.

This is a very emotional and touching story. It brings to reality that child abuse is happening and sometimes it's right under our noses.

The New Death and Others - Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

By: James Hutchings

Reviewed By: Crysal Trent Dotson

This book of short stories and poetry is dark, and compelling. I enjoyed the entire book, I did like some stories better than others, but overall the book is a great read. The poems are different and refreshing. I think Mr. Hutchings is a very talented Author that puts much detail and mind twisting plots into his writings. I would like to see a longer story by him.

Nineteen Years Of Living Hell - Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

By: Joy Allen
Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

Joy Allen tells her story of an abusive marriage. The awful things she had to endure during her marriage is heartbreaking. Ed never worried about her or her needs, and as time went on things just kept getting worse for Joy.
This story is upsetting at times, but I encourage people to read it, and help stop domestic abuse. It happens in so many marriages, and this is just one story of a woman that had the courage to tell hers.

I recieved a complimentary copy of Nineteen years of Living Hell, as a member of the Dorrance Publishing Book Review Team. Visit to learn how to become a member of the book review team.
