Give us a synopsis of your most recent book in 3 paragraphs or less
Wait for Love: A Black Girl's Story is the story of Lynnette Donna Lee's life. Lynnette desires love in the form of someone else more than she does herself.
Lynette endures physical abuse, mental abuse, and a torrid relationship with her weight. She bares her soul and her body many times in search of the man she'll marry. The only problem she has is with the men she chooses to give her all to. They show her they don't love her and then go to extremes to get the point across. Why does she keep holding on when the only love involved is nowhere to be found?
