Forbidden Love Reviews
The books I usually read are self-help or business oriented so this was a departure for me. IT. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT.
The storyline of this fascinated me - a secret love affair between a priest and a nun - interracial at that - and they had a baby! I couldn't believe this was true at first, but with recent revelations about the secrecy in the Catholic Church, I realized anything is possible.
The overall message I got was "love is love" and it made me feel ashamed of some of the negative beliefs I held about interracial dating. The fact that these two people fell in love despite all the odds against them, really shows the power of love.
Hard to believe this story is true, cause it is SO OUT THERE, but it is. The author went to school with the "love child." The writer's ability to capture the dialogue between the characters and their internal thoughts is nothing short of amazing. The details were so vivid, she really made them come to life. Even details about how annoying the hospital staff was coming in and out of her room as the mother was telling her story to her son.
I liked the way she weaved in multiple supporting storylines - racial issues, the Catholic Church, adoption, colorism in the black community, WWII history. This book should really become a movie - SOON.
