READERS RAVE

Our Lit Gems are more than mere buyers. They're our literary family & community! We're thrilled to share some of the love and appreciation we have received from them here:

  • I AM MOST PLEASED WITH THIS STORY

    ★★★★★

    "I enjoyed Niyana's story immensely and pray it helped other women who are suffering silently to be able to embrace their true selves and live
    their lives hairless or with artificial hair as long as it is their very true selves."

  • CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK

    ★★★★★

    "Thoroughly enjoyable! It was different and I loved the Christian spin put on their love story that was not about sex, even though there was temptation. Yazmeen and Tav were such an adorable couple"

  • MY FAVORITE GENT

    ★★★★★

    "My favorite Gent series book yet. Loved the grown and sexy aura of the book. Loved Lex and the fact that he knew just the right things to do and say to reassure [Senae] that he was not playing games."

  • EXCELLENT FROM BEGINNING TO END

    ★★★★★

    "Suzette D. Harrison has again created a beautiful word picture that touches the hearts of readers. The book is well written and captures one's attention immediately--holding it until long after the last sentence has been read."

  • WONDERFUL JOB

    ★★★★★

    "...a phenomenal story of redemption and what it's truly like being a Christian dealing with real life issues and struggles. My Joy had me cracking up...in tears, and cheering for Joy and Que!"

  • LYRICAL AND COLORFUL

    ★★★★★

    "There are few novels that have rendered me speechless, but I can
    truly say that Taffy has succeeded in taking me on the literary journey of a lifetime. Kudos Ms. Suzette D. Harrison, you did the "dang" thing!!"

  • BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN

    ★★★★★

    "The characters are beautifully written and I came to love them within the first few pages and was rooting for them all the way to the end. At times I wanted to stop reading because I just wanted the experience to go on for longer."

  • YOU MADE MY HEART SWELL

    ★★★★★

    "If John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath is required reading for middle school, why not a book exploring the black experience of migration? Thank you for telling our story in a way that shows the richness of our culture."

  • ONE WORD...AMAZING!

    ★★★★★

    "This story had me going through a range of emotions. From being in tears, to laughing, to wanting to break Dominic's fingers, cheering on Ona and Tessa, and lastly, appreciative & grateful for my ancestors who I know prayed for my freedom."
