Parents have a responsibility to love, care, guide and protect their child. Ebony does not receive these qualities in Ebony the Beloved by Hannah Spivey. Ebony is a teenage girl who has been dealt the worst hand anyone has had to deal with in one lifetime. Ebony’s dysfunctional environment pushes her out into the world blindsided with nothing. All that she endures does not detour her from wanting a normal life. When she is rescued by a familiar face, Ebony believes dreams do come true until…Desmond is an entertainer with an array of women at his beck and call. When he meets Ebony at a concert, he immediately wants her for himself. Desmond convinces Ebony to find a way to meet him and once that meeting occurs, Ebony’s life will never be the same. Desmond is used to getting his way and may have bitten off more than he bargained for.
Ebony the Beloved is about surviving in the worst situation. The author does a wonderful job with descriptions, which provides a realistic visual of the main characters plight throughout the book. This book had me angry and frustrated at times but I was not able to put it down. My heart went out to the main character. Hannah Spivey has a unique writing style and I look forward to reading more from this author. I recommend this book to others.
