Embracing the shattered pieces of the soul and championing the resilient nature of the heart, A
Womans Worth takes readers on a journey of startling depth. From a speakeasy whorehouse in the bottoms of Alabama to a luxurious high-rise apartment in Kenya, acclaimed author Tracy Price-Thompson crosses boundaries of sexuality, gender, and culture to accentuate the core of black identity: the enormous strength of family.
Ain't nothing like a Black man. No other man on the face of the earth can hold a light up to him, coming or going. Why do you think white women are all the time chasing behind them? Smooth game and all, when a brotha loves you, he loves you right.
Abeni Omorru is a stunning Kenyan woman who is haunted by piercing memories. Although her fathers wealth ensures her a life of prestige, childhood trauma has left her emotionally damaged and sexually promiscuous. While Abeni takes on many lovers, none come close to healing the wounds of her heart and only a man who understands her worth can truly claim her soul.
