Fiction/African American

The North Branch Renaissance Men's Book Club reviews LOVE, HONOR, AND BETRAY by Kimberla Lawson Roby (Grand Central, 2011)

The book club readers really enjoyed this book. This book is a part of the notorious Rev. Curtis Black saga, with a lot of twists and turns!

Curtis Black's wife, Charlotte, is the central character. Curtis Black has fathered a child by his mistress. The mistress dies and now Black must decide if he will take care of his illegitimate two-year-old daughter, Curtina, or send the child to be cared for by another family. Well now! Black chooses to take Curtina in, but this is to the dismay of Charlotte. Charlotte resents Curtina and takes out her frustrations on the girl. Charlotte also begins spending more time away from family and more time with her ex-boyfriend.

This book is a good read for those familiar with the infamous Curtis Black and for readers who like a lot of drama!
