Book Review - Through the Storm by Sha' Givens

Posted by nazeyo on March 18th, 2019

Mahogany Malone was named on her mother's favorite dancer, and you can fight this young namesake can be a dancer. Mahogany dances through her childhood with dangerous reject, quickly rejecting her mother's rules and Religious values in favor of an intimate pas p deux with handsome scholar David Genere. A battle with her mother shortly sends Mahogany tap-dancing in to her forbidden boyfriend's hands, spiraling in to the effects of conclusions which will form her life for years to come.

Skip forward a couple of years, and Mahogany's post-college life looks no distinctive from the main one she existed in high school. However her relationship with her mother has significantly relieved, Mahogany's view of Mama Malone's Leads genereren unwavering religion in God is unchanged. Life as a Religious is barely on top of her list of points,  as Mahogany is more worried about locating an ideal job, man, and house - not necessarily in that order. Despite the wishes of her mother and closest friend Jennifer, it generally does not happen to Mahogany that Jesus could be that man. As an alternative Mahogany's dance record repeats it self as an entanglement with her committed boss places her in a unenviable situation, one which contributes to just one more bad decision.

Through the Hurricane could be the history of Mahogany's trip to maturation, an activity that comes not only from the mistakes built but what is learned from these mistakes. In her debut book, Sha'Givens frames a normal history of failure and payoff with powerful girl characters. Persistent Mahogany's constant situations with her tough-as-nails mother are the book's strength and provide a sensible slant to this story. Opportunity activities with different "angels" skilled at factors of good stress in Mahogany's life also give an undercurrent of religion and provide bright areas to Mahogany's otherwise dim view of life.

Writer Givens, according to at least one biography, is really a sought-after motivational audio and Religious evangelist, and Through the Hurricane is but among the instruments offered through her ministry to simply help the others study the advantages of religious pieces instead of the product types Mahogany seeks. A powerful debut history, Givens doesn't sugercoat Mahogany's life. It's difficult, because the audience will see, yet through Christ the result is very satisfying.
