Angel Through The Storms by Clement Binnings Jr. is a powerful fictional story that grabs the reader from the first page. Lola Parrish grew up watching her father in drunken rages abuse her mother. As she grows up his attentions turn to her, and one night in a drunken rage, he rapes Lola, his own daughter. Fleeing, Lola heads for the only refuge she knows, New Orleans and her best friend Corinne. When she discovers she is pregnant, there is no doubt she will keep the baby; her personality changes, her panic attacks lessen and she becomes serene. This child that was conceived out of evil will come into this world as a special child: a crystal child who shows a powerful force of love; a child who, when his eyes gaze upon you, you can't look away; a child who is wise beyond his years. This is Grover Parrish. When her father enters her world again, can Lola weather the storms of life? Will she let go and learn to love the only man that has been in her life, her former doctor?
This book is difficult to review because I do not want to give away the plot. The plot was delicious, making it difficult to lay down. This book is a love story with a spiritual side and a tragic side; a story that shows good and evil existing together and fighting against each other. The characters are powerful and seem to draw the reader into the midst of them. The book does start out a little rough, but that sets the stage for what is to follow: a deeply riveting novel.
