Running from Solace

Product Details

By Nakia R. Laushaul

In her debut novel, Nakia gave voice to the many people who silently live through childhood abuse. She does this very sincerely and genuinely. Nakia R. Laushaul bravely takes on subject matter that is difficult. She is straight-forward and real in her writing.

From the beginning, you are drawn into the tormented life of little Naomi. Wanting love and acceptance, what she receives is abuse and pain. That Naomi survives is the ultimate reward for the reader, as well as for Naomi herself. One can never get over abuse, but one can get through it and survive it.

The characters are so honest and real that they will stay with you long after you close the book. While it is a painful story to read, it is an important and powerful book. Nakia Laushaul reminds us that if we let it, what does not kill us can indeed makes us stronger.


  1. This sounds like something everyone should read. Sometimes it's so important to move beyond the hard times and become the people we're meant to be :0)

  2. Hope you are having a great long weekend! I saw your comment last night. I actually replied to you (on my about page) a couple of weeks ago when you first wrote me about blogher. There are some typos since I used the tablet, but check it out. If you have any more questions, just email me :)

  3. Hi! This book and Before I Go to Sleep sound very good!
    Enjoy you day~
