In honor of Women's History Month, I want to spotlight a female author: Hope B! Hope's new and critically acclaimed book: "Chronicles of a Reformed Church Girl", is a must read.
The book dives into the spiritual, emotional and mental being of a young girl from her adolescents to adulthood. The author does a superb job of not only narrating the story but identifying cultural, social and racial issues which are currently prevalent.
