Guest Review: The Lights of Tenth Street

The Lights of Tenth Street

They have the house, the two kids, and the minivan. They have a well-meaning but shallow church. What Sherry doesn't know is that Doug has a shameful struggle with his thought life. When an exotic dancer's life intersects theirs, this suburban couple has to make a hard choice: do they risk their convenience and security for her sake, or do they cross to the other side of the road? The dark forces will not easily give up their most important pawn. But Ronnie must come out of the darkness, for only she can unravel a plot of devastating destruction.

This was a book of a different color. The main character runs into
financial hardships and finds herself working at a strip club.
Watching as, little by little, she sinks into sins tight grip, its
hard not to yell at her and warn her OR even thinking you may have
done things just as her. Why is it as outsiders we can see other
things so clearly, yet when it is we, ourselves, we cannot see and
cannot help ourselves where we need to?

The sub plot is also very devious and I like how the author tied them
all together.

I'd give this book 4.5 out of 5. I'd give it a 4 for the subject and a
5 for the emotions I felt throughout.
