The East Coast -Visitor Brenda James, whose first love Greg left her with a broken heart instead of a marriage proposal on a hot summer night after finding out about his new lover, and unborn baby on the way with her best friends’ sister. Rediscovering love was not lost for long; she would meet Theo Shell a stranger who would explore her precious temple; which allowed her to embrace her womanhood. Before graduation she would need to choose between a life alone, and an unexpected marriage proposal. The West Coast - Native Rachel Tims, a woman with quiet strength and startling beauty, whose ambition to become a lawyer led her to quench her thirst for success in the arms of a man who was torn between her and his home. Her millionaire lover Phillip Daniels placed the world at her feet, yet she must decide to step forward or step away from what her heart was leading her into. The Southern - Peach Lee Jordan used lustful married men as she roared like a lioness in pursuit of her prey. Yet, her “manizing” ways made her fall for a much older married lover Sergeant Ethan Robinson, whose death would cause her to abruptly change the way she embraced love. Making wrong and right decisions would predict these women’s futures. JUST GOING THRU SOME THANGS together is what they must do to get to the next “journey” in their lives.

The Letting Go presents a journey through one courageous woman’s life as she deals with childhood trauma, neglect, and child abuse. Eventually, author Sasha Frost learned to overcome her demons and deal with her rage and her suicidal and homicidal thoughts. As flashbacks of her childhood pushed her to the brink, she realized that she had to make peace with the trauma of the past to have a productive future. As she grew into a young woman dealing with the demands of being a single parent, homelessness, and her sexual identity, she learned that the best way to conquer and alleviate her fears—to be able to forgive—is by letting go. Frost’s life seemed as normal as anyone’s; she lived with her mother, father, and siblings. She had good times with her family, but that life also sheltered such destructive forces as childhood trauma and neglect. Child abuse takes many forms; it may be emotional, physical, or sexual abuse. Even so, the outcome is the same—the child misses the unconditional love that our lives depend upon. Her spirituality helped her to make it through the toughest of times, but she was also able to make peace with those who abused her, thus enabling her to move ahead with her life.
