Broken Promise (Beyond Series #1) by Andrea Smith3.75 to 4 Stars Great Start to the Limbo series with high hopes of what is to come!
This is one of those books that is a bit hard to review because it is impossible to say much without giving away the plot or dropping major spoilers!
What I will say is that Andrea Smith delivered a pretty unique, out of the box romance tale that had an air of suspense and quite a few OMG moments!
Silent Whisper introduces Parrish Locke...a young beauty whose time has been spent in front of a camera. She has a decent life, a good boyfriend, and a seemingly good plan for the future. But what happens when one event changes your whole life in just an instant?
Parrish has front row viewing of a tumultuous romance between a rich, sexy Mob capo Dominick and a young beauty whose services are paid for in a small town nestled in the hills of West Virginia. Hot and passionate is what Andrea Smith gives with Nick and Karlie...
It is through Parrish that you get the full experience into a seemingly pretty woman scenario of rich man takes poor girl into a life of luxury. He gives everything to her...her happiness is the driving force behind his being, even though his family will never accept his MISTRESS!
A story filled with a passionate love, a domineering man, and a woman whose life is always on the edge emerges. Dominick and Karlie are two characters creating the story but it is Parrish Locke who is pivotal in the end.
Through her, the reader is able to feel an undying love between two people, a loss of what could have been, the shock of betrayal, and the hope of a future to reconnect the bonds that were never to be broken.

“Me? I?”: Unraveling, Madness, and Coming of Age
Set in both Trinidad and a rural Wisconsin college town in , it is also heavily invested in the US Civil Rights Movement and the cultural and political negotiations required of black West Indians living in the United States during this volatile time. Given the various and almost always problematic interpretations of the term transnational in current scholarship across disciplines, it is worth starting with a description of how I will be using it throughout this article. While transnational is almost universally understood to describe organizations, commerce, relationships, or cultural movements among other things that cross national boundaries and are not limited by national affiliation, this definition fails to address the power dynamics inherent in the processes that make such border-crossing possible. Without wading too deeply into debates over the potential perils of globalization, this article situates transnationalism within the broader historical trajectory of imperialism, from the conquest and independence movements of former European colonies to cultural and economic neocolonialism which is indeed tied to the rise of multinational corporate interests during the second half of the twentieth century, when many of these independence movements took place. Moreover, with regard to postcolonial migration narratives published in the s and early s, diasporic transnationalism offers a productive model for understanding the way contemporary writers increasingly connect migration to global systems of oppression and resistance, as Nunez does in Beyond the Limbo Silence. Consequently, she finds herself unexpectedly connected to African Americans in their shared histories of violence, slavery, oppression, and struggle for independence and equality. The novel suggests that the canonical British novels Sara reads as an adolescent inform her expectations of the world and, to an extent, her self-perception.

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Beyond the Limbo Silence Sarah Edgehill receives a scholarship to attend college in the U. She spends weeks deciding whether to go. - Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Early on, the opportunity seems a mixed blessing. Yet, it was Americans who gave Sara a polo vaccine that saved her life. In the dorms, Sara meets Courtney, a black woman from St. Lucia who practices vodun, and Angela, an East Indian woman from British Guiana, who yearns to assimilate into the all white dorm and the all white community around her. It is imperative for both to remember their histories as African peoples in the New World in order to recognize that the liberation of one group heralds freedom for all.
