Mark and Vivienne Morana

River Never Smooth, Reclaiming Power After Abuse is a compelling, nail-biting, anxiety building, on-the-edge-of-your-seat reader. The fact that this is non-fiction makes it more compelling even alarming. It is one where anger, frustration and forgiveness all intertwine. It is one of those books that one does not want to read, but in the same breath, cannot put down. The emotional ups and downs are, to say the least, nerve-racking. However, here is a young lady who has used adversities as stepping stones; she has also used what she was taught – Proverbs 22:6 – “Train up a child in the way (s)he should go, and when he is old, (s)he will not depart from it” – she prayed. That was one of the things she relied on heavily. She knew prayer moves the hand of God, and although she did not use it as often as she could, somewhere from the recesses of her mind, it was brought to the forefront. Although one has to forgive, one does not have to stick around for another dose of abuse.

The facts are there. Abuse affects both men and women. One abusive relationship affects not just those immediately involved, but those within their sphere of influence, children, of course, siblings, parents, in-laws, coworkers, neighbors, friends, church groups, etc. It also takes a toll on the emotional, physical, financial and most of all spiritual aspects of one’s life. Angelique, the young lady with “an interesting personality”, overcame abuse and lived to write about it. A story that brings awareness to the most innocent minds.

 I met Angelique yesterday morning, and I could not part from her until I was assured she was in a good place.  The time I spent with her took me on an emotional rollercoaster; I was terrified for her,  devastated by her heartbreaks, and angered by her constant victimization. Thirty-two hours later, I was filled with joy to see Angelique come into awareness. She could now take in what the universe knew all along, self-love was the way out. Angelique compelled my soul to forever embrace hope.

River Never Smooth: Reclaiming Power After Abuse is a compelling, insightful look into the world of relationship failure and eventual revival and survival. The author’s writing compels you to continue reading just to reveal the next turn and sequence of each character. This book is a must read for those in need of abusive relationship realizations as well as those who might be in a position to assist others that are experiencing the perils of relationship troubles. I encourage all to take this ride along with Angelique as she takes you through every step and thought leading up to her final landing place of power and perfection. This is a must read for all audiences!!!

In “River Never Smooth”, we meet Angelique, a woman whose failed encounters with love place her on a quest for validation. While the demons of violence, abuse, neglect and betrayal are recurring in this story, Harewood’s precision in detailing Angelique’s journey compels the reader to feel admiration and compassion for this woman. Sadly, Angelique is a representation of too many women in the world today. Throughout the book, we fear, we cry, and we pray for Angelique, and in the end we cheer as the author skillfully weaves-in surrender as the healing balm for Angelique’s severely wounded heart.

River Never Smooth: Reclaiming Power After Abuse is a fitting title for this book. Reading books is not one of my hobbies, but after being encouraged to read this book, I must say it was time well spent. As I started to read, the very first page was shocking and interesting. I was intrigued, I wanted to know more. WOW! WOW! WOW! flooded my thoughts as I continued reading. I could not put my kindle down and even though my eyes would be half opened, I still wanted to know what happened next. A beautiful love story, turned into a worst nightmare for Angie and her kids. I cried at times. This book is perfect for young women and men who are looking for that perfect person to love and with whom to share the rest of their lives, and especially for women with kids who are in abusive relationships.
