5.0 out of 5 stars Life After Emotional Death 11 July 2017
By Reader's Paradise - Published on

This book reminded me of that old Betty Wright song of the same title After the Pain. The lyrics; After the pain you come and love me and I welcome you. You're a glad sight to see. After so much disappointment, heart break and pain LaVonda Ingram picks up and starts on a new journey. One that will give her a new definition of living with purpose. An opportunity for her to believe in herself and possibly find love.

Quick question has life ever taken a turn that made you pause and then want a redo?
LaVonda story opens with her laying face down on her lawn which had me laughing out loud. Actually there are several laugh out loud moments that won't disappoint.
But the title isn't as comedic as it is heart wrenching. those comedy moment are a wonderful break from all the emotions that take place throughout the story.

Yes, a wonderful story and page turner. An excellent insight dealing with depression, learning self-worth and forgiveness And by all means allowing God to do his business. The love between Von and August was awesome. Needless to say I was their personal cheerleader throughout the story. Loved it Ms Thompson. A job well done...and my comment after the completion of the story was awwww instead of whewwww.

Sometimes we have to deal with the hand we're given, but for LaVonda Ingram, that hand has overflowed. Beginning with the sudden loss of her mother, LaVonda has dealt with many issues surrounding a disorder that many tend to overlook. Depression is a serious illness that affects over 40 Million people in the U.S. alone. Kudo's to the author for starting with a serious issue and dealing with it in a realistic manner.

Welcome to Hyacinth Manor, where reservations are by invitation only. After giving into a round of depression and slight mental lapse, LaVonda is sent to a mental facility to deal with her depression. She knows all too well what to do to appease people so she released and returns home. One night after, she's ready to leave. With no destination in mind, she winds up at Hyacinth Manor.
Upon her arrival at Hyacinth Manor, the owner/clerk takes one look at her and knows exactly where she belongs, Room Ten. Believing in the power of love and healing, Ms. Rosa sees that LaVonda is in need of both.

This was another great read by this author. I've read a few of her books and she never ceases to fail me. She takes a tough issue and tackles it head on. On another note, I thought I'd previously left this review until I got a notification to review the book from Amazon, lol.

What would you do if you had an overprotective sister; who basically ran your life since you was a teenager until you were in your mid-forties? Well, Evetta went under server depression and a tough time from her sister Von.

This book is also part of a series too. Evetta lost her husband, almost her mind, but found the inner strength to love again. I enjoyed the story line, however the chapters seemed rushed. Evetta fell in love with a man name August while trying to escape depression, her sister, and where she once called home.

From reading and understanding, Evetta didn't seem like a very strong character and I didn't feel a strong connection with her. I didn't feel like I should feel sorry for her at all.

Depression is deadly. Evetta couldn't seem to stop feeling sorry for herself, until she found love and the truth about her sister. I wished the characters were more developed, so we could have a better mental image of her sister. The title in a way did not match the story line well either.

In conclusion, I will be reading more from this author and from the series. If you are looking for a quick and good read, I truly would recommend this book to any one over the age of 18. - Via GoodReads
