This review is from: A Black Rose Thrived: A Memoir Reflecting the Conquest of Overcoming Addictions & Self Hate (Kindle Edition)
This is an emotional and heart-touching story about a girl who holds the weight of her parents abusive relationship. It’s a story that is wonderfully written and it truly touched my soul!
The book sends a message of how to overcome self-hate and addictions.

“Everything I went through made me who I am today. You will experience my highs, my lows, my pain and my growth.” The author Rochelle Richey uses strong and powerful words and to be honest – once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down.I would definitely recommend it to my friends!

(Kedar  From Writer’s Cafe)

I read your poem and was moved by it.
I just read this story today 
WOW ! 
What a story, it nearly brought tears to my eyes.
I can relate to it.
It is packed with so much emotions.
I can feel your heart and soul through this honest and heartfelt
account of your life.
It touched my soul.
You clearly are a survivor.
You clearly have determination.
And that is why you are able to tell your story.
You definitely are a writer to watch out for.
Your Style is deep and raw!


Story line: it is a memoir of the author who is born to a dysfunctional family. Dad was a drunkard, wife beater, drug addict and gambler.  Mom never had the courage to leave him and start over. Rochelle decides that she wants something better out of life but she keeps tumbling down every time. Fallen into bad friend circle, the men in her life do not help her much. The story that the author has to tell is indeed very interesting. The good thing about the book is that it does not end on a sad note. She tells you how she has forgiven and moved on. The courage of the author is truly inspiring. 

Concept: the concept is not very different but very interesting. The author has chosen to tell her story and she has held no bar. I am sure a lot of people who read non-fiction are going to like this.
 Overall: the book is definitely a good read  it is a good read for anyone who is dealing with a troubled life and needs some inspiration.
