Recently published poet, David Alston loses his job, and sales from his book can't stop him from finding an eviction notice attached to his front door. Trying to keep a roof over his head with only a few dollars left, he finds himself in a shabby motel. There, he encounters the beautiful, but mysterious Shonte, and his misfortune seems to immediately take a turn for the better. But as suddenly as she appears she is gone.

Prayerfully, David finds a back-breaking job in a retail shipping department. With Shonte gone, he sets his sights, however lustfully, on the unrepentant exotic dancer, muse, and former flame, Red.

In the midst of loneliness, and professional despair the hope of success as a writer, and his desire to see Shonte again remain. With a little luck, David discovers the possibility of a love and financial life which he couldn't have dreamed.

I enjoyed the book. Finally a book with African-American characters where the positive was accentuated. There were drugged out, child molesting, irresponsible fathers. I found the lead character David Alston to be a stand up guy, but not without flaws.

Romeo and Juliet meets Horatio Alger! A truly romantic story. Excellent.

I would recommend this book. My only complaint about the book was that it could have been longer. I hope there is a sequel. I think there needs to be one.
