A much-anticipated sequel that is a steamy, page-turning story of friendship, drama, and love tossed about in the storms of life.
Readers are brought back into the lives of friends and lovers Indera, Britton, Damascus, and Chyna, all who continue to struggle with their desires and demons in life. As their lives intertwine with others, delicious and dirty secrets start to overflow, threatening the orderly world they've worked to create for themselves.
Indera is learning that some matters of the heart are beyond her control, and that, rather than clinging to revenge, her path to freedom is found in forgiveness. Damascus believes he's found his soulmate in Indera, but wonders if her crazy antics will send him running. Britton is recovering from yet another failed relationship and learns the disturbing truth about the mother of his twin boys. And Chyna and Sarina, mother and daughter, come to odds as Chyna must separate from her daughter or risk losing herself to Sarina's increasingly unstable world of paranoia. Lastly is Celeste, a woman with a mysterious past who tries to manipulate events among the many friends, only to get entangled in her own trap.
With volatile emotion brewing in everyone's hearts and explosive decisions being forced in every moment, From My Soul to Yours is an engrossing tale of the shelters people seek during troubled times -- sure to delight, entertain, and enlighten Dywane D. Birch's fans.
Though Birch's sequel to Shattered Souls is crammed to overflowing with secrets, sex and anguish, lamentable prose and clunky plotting make a drag out of this hefty tome about a group of friends. Feisty, successful businesswoman Indera Fleet-Miles and stripper turned author Tee are married, and although their sex life is satisfying, he wants her to provide him with domestic creature comforts, but she's not game for that. Their friend Britton is trying to cope with his young sons while their bi-sexual mother Lina unsuccessfully tries to start up her acting career. Chyna is worried about her grown daughter, Sarina, who has psychological problems. New to the group, Celeste has a shadowy past and a desire to reunite with her former lover. Graphic sex scenes abound and provide temporary respite from the confidante role Birch places readers in. The author shamelessly plugs his previous book by forcing characters to read it (one character certifies it as "one well-crafted piece of fiction, a definite page-turner"). Even readers who enjoyed Birch's earlier work find this monotonous.
