    An AMAZING story about breaking the cycle of abuse and living a life worth being proud ofThis is the first story by Tonya M Barber that I have read and will absolutely not be the last one This story is AMAZING and will touch a nerve in every reader This story tells of a young girl's promise to herself and the love that helped her keep that promiseRainy's story is one that is too commona young girl growing up in an abusive household She fights to not let the horrific fate that has befallen on her mother befall her With the help of her grandparents her friends and her first love she navigates through the ups and downs of lifeTonya M Barber has a way of telling Rainy's story that leaves her readers feeling emotionally connected to her story I rooted for Rainy to break the cycle and come out even stronger then she started I was not disappointed with any part of this story It was so real and so easy to follow I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a great story that you don't want to end I think everyone will fall in love with Rainy and her soldier
