Easily one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in 2020, Can I Give My Husband Back? is fun and yet there’s more to it. Can I Give My Husband Back?

Petals of Rain: a Mother’s Memoir

It’s not too often that you have the pleasure of reading an author who you’ve been interacting in for a while. So when Rica Keenum offered me her memoir, Petals of Rain, to read and review, I jumped on the offer. My only regret is that it’s taken me so long to get the review of this lovely book up. Petals of Rain Taking a girl’s voice is the same as taking her power. This is a memoir about love and loss, secrets and lies. When a young girl from a broken family meets a charming man, she attempts to
