 My Father’s Colors  by Marian L. thomas  was a  entertaining , yet poetic  and compelling story about the main character Naya Mona’s journey to find her voice, develop  a relationship with a son and search for a daughter she was not aware existed. She struggles to find peace and forgive her father as she is a survival of incest and rape that produced her children at a young age. I loved the gentleness and tone with which the author allowed the characters to share with us their drama filled journey filled with secrets, regret, and betrayal.

 Although I was left wondering about some characters and situations, the story was engaging and I enjoyed the author’s  creative style in telling the story. The talented R and B singer, Naya Mona, gains strength and courage to face her demons, tell her story, and to seek and speak the truth. She musters the courage to stop allowing other people to color her attitude and reactions to life, but to determine the colors she will select to define herself and her world.

April is National Child Abuse Awareness Prevention Month.  This story reminds us that  many boys and girls have suffered violence and sexual perversion at the hands of persons they trusted as well as from strangers. Please report child abuse. If you have suffered from such conduct seek help and counseling and know that you are worthy of love.
