Sister Souljah, the New York Times bestselling author of The Coldest Winter Ever and Midnight, delivers her most compelling and enlightening story yet. With Midnight and The Meaning of Love, Souljah brings to her millions of fans an adventure about young, deep love, the ways in which people across the world express their love, and the lengths that they will go to have it.
Powerful and sensual, Midnight is an intelligent, fierce fighter and Ninjutsu-trained ninja warrior. He attracts attention wherever he goes but remains unmoved by it and focuses on protecting his mother and sister and regaining his family’s fortunes. When Midnight, a devout Muslim, takes sixteen-year-old Akemi from Japan as his wife, they look forward to building a life together, but their tumultuous teenage marriage is interrupted when Akemi is kidnapped and taken back to Japan by her own father, even though the marriage was consummated and well underway.
“There’s not one drop of inferiority in my blood,” Midnight says as he first secures his mother, Umma, and sister, Naja, before setting off on a global journey to reclaim his wife. Midnight must travel across three countries and numerous cultures in his attempt to defeat his opponent. Along this magnificent journey he meets people who change him forever, even as he changes them. He encounters temptations he never would have imagined and takes risks that many a lesser man would say no to, all for the women he loves and is sworn to protect.

Great detail. A lot of detail in explaining culture, religion, and beliefs of diverse backgrounds. From the Muslim African, to the Christian/non-Christian in America. Very educational and eye opening to the problems in our community with lack of responsibility and commitent to do what is right in God's eyes no matter what. Can't wait to read the sequel...
The Sister is a Souljah
I've read the first three of her books and I am delighted that someone has taken it upon themselves to not only address the many "untold" issues within our community, but to challenge us to correct them. I am an African woman that has also been "Americanized" and I believe that as a people we need to be enlightened. I have been looking forward to the next installment and cannot wait to read it. I wish 'No Disrespect' was an option because that is a MUST READ for all lost people needing some guidance.
I think this book is okay I think it really degrades black women I'm not raciest but why couldn't midnight be with a black women? If not with a black women then why did bangs have to be so disfuntional? Even though the coldest winter ever is my favorite book i still think that winter was protrayed as a ignorant black women not all black women are like that 3 out of 5 stars
