Happy Thursday! Today we’re throwing it back to 2017 with A Cry for Independence by Joy K. Massenburge. A Cry for Independence was originally featured in the novella collection titled Summer Fireworks, which was written by six multi-published popular authors and three debut authors. In 2018, A Cry for Independence was released as a separate novella.
First of all, I have to say that the cover of this novella is absolutely gorgeous! The cover immediately captured my attention and convinced me that I needed to read it. I love discovering new-to-me authors!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Some cry wolf, Tammie Morris cries independence after surviving an abusive relationship.
Having Q’s baby out of wedlock and struggling to support herself and her child, she is determined to never depend on a man again. It has taken twelve months to gain her GED, employment, and the five-year-life-plan she is committed to live by to make it happen. When her apartment availability is delayed, she is forced into a temporary living arrangement with her son’s father that threatens the future she’s mapped out.
Quan Blanton Sr., Q, has found the freedom only salvation through Jesus can offer. All there is to do now is put his family back together and live the
Christian life. Only one problem, Tammie doesn’t want anything to do with him or his God. Is there anything too hard for God? Q and Tammie discover all things are possible with Christ.
