Book of the Day: The Warmest December by Bernice L McFadden

Today’s book is my latest read by @bernicelmcfadden :

The Warmest December is the incredibly moving story of one Brooklyn family and the alcoholism that determined years of their lives. Narrated by Kenzie Lowe, a young woman reminiscent of Jamaica Kincaid’s Annie John, as she visits her dying father and finds that choices she once thought beyond her control are very much hers to make.

If you would like to purchase a copy for yourself or a friend, you can find it in the Bernice L McFadden section of the Diamond’s Literary World Amazon storefront.

This is one of the steamiest short stories that I’ve ever read!

Trent is finally ready to make this birthday celebration very memorable!

Way to go @terussnovels!

“Playboi” and up-and-coming barber, Jasmine “Jazz” Richardson finally got her life together. After a turbulent childhood and even more troubled adolescence, she finally came into her own. Along with having a flourishing career, she enjoyed the single life. Love was not on her itinerary.

Then along came Melody King.

The songstress next door caught Jazz’s attention in a way that no other woman ever had, offering her a friendship that she hadn’t known she needed. As Jazz underwent a major life change, Melody was right by her side, and though they agreed to work on their friendship, it soon grew into something much deeper.

But when Jazz is hit with a devastating blast from her past, will they be able to withstand the blow or will Jazz get in her own way, costing herself the love and the family that she never thought she could have?

A Guide to Talking Finances with Our Daughters!
As many as 56% of women feel that they’d rather not talk about money with their loved ones. Some women say they were raised not to discuss money and others feel like the information is just too personal. Yet with many women controlling household budgets and raising the next generation of female earners, this could be a recipe for disaster in some homes and for society at large.

How a Mother Should Talk About Money with Her Daughter helps readers broach money topics with their daughters in a meaningful, compassionate, and even fun way. It speaks to parents who may feel inadequate about their own money skills but still want to discuss money with their daughters while helping them build good financial habits. The goal is to start conversations that leave parents and girls empowered to love themselves (through good money management) and make the world a better place with their financial resources. Topics include how to save as a young person, the pros and cons of investing, how to determine which college is right (in terms of finances and future job prospects), how to determine a future partner is right (in terms of similar financial goals), and more.

Nylah Jenkins has loved Darius for as long as she can remember. She’s been by his side through thick and thin, and he’s been by hers, but now as they head toward the altar a second time, doubts about his loyalty start to seep in. Those doubts are compounded when what begins as a friendly reunion with old college friends to an intervention that none of them could’ve seen coming.

Meanwhile, it is time for the reunion of five college women who are successful, confident, and most of the time on fire for God. They’re all coming together to celebrate their older friend, 15 years of marriage as she acclaims by renewing her wedding vows.

‘Mama Bear’, a former college R.A, better known as Nylah by her peers, has plans for her friends. She’s determined to find the perfect Godly men for them, but with her meddling, their own desperation to beat their biological clocks, and misguided attempts to get things right, block them from love at every turn.

Will lingering doubts from the past, messy friends, and mistrust ruin Nylah’s chance for her renewing of her vows and having a real happily-ever-after with the man of her dreams? Or will love, faith, and prayer prevail for all? Find out what happens in He Who Finds A Wife!

Congratulations @sadeqasays!

This harrowing story follows an enslaved woman forced to barter love and freedom while living in the most infamous slave jail in Virginia.

Born on a plantation in Charles City Virginia, Pheby Delores Brown has lived a privileged life. Shielded by her mother’s position as the plantation’s medicine woman, and cherished by the Master’s sister, she is set apart from the others on the plantation, belonging to neither world.

Freedom on her eighteenth birthday has been promised to her, but instead of the idyllic life she imagined with her true love, Essex Henry, Pheby is forced to leave the only home she has ever known and unexpectedly finds herself thrust into the bowels of slavery at the infamous “Devil’s Half-Acre,” a jail where the enslaved are broken, tortured, and sold every day in Richmond, Virginia. There Pheby is exposed not just to her Jailor’s cruelty but also to his contradictions. To survive Pheby will have to outwit him but soon faces the ultimate sacrifice.

Fancy McCoy is determined to live her best life after being duped by a man sent by her ex-husband to humiliate her. Dem McCoy Boys are still making their marks and leaving some unforgettable legacies (not necessarily all good ones). Stiles’s visits to Holy Rock are growing more frequent. Is it because of his new position or the new lady in his life?
