    Mary Monroe is a New York Times best-selling author who pens tales of life’s emotional tapestry. Lost Daughters follows Maureen Montgomery and her daughter, Loretta, as they strive to make a life after the death of Maureen’s domineering mother. Forever scarred by Mama Ruby’s tyrannical ways, Maureen longs for a quiet, simple life. But Loretta has something far different in mind. Dreaming of fame and fortune, she embarks on a modeling career. Mama Ruby, however, casts a shadow with the power to darken their lives.

    Story
    What would have made Lost Daughters better?

    the storyline should have moved along a lot faster.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the first 3hours of the book are actually really good; they draw you into the story, however from there it goes down hill.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lost Daughters?

    most of it. its like the author set up the storyline, but it doesn't really move. It keeps reiterating the same information over and over again with the exception of throwing in a couple extra characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was happy that this book didn't focus on sex, drugs, and violence like most black books, but to my disappointment this book was dreadfully uneventful and it moved at a very slow pace. To give you an example, I fell asleep during the last 2 and 1/2 hours of the book. I awoke just 15minutes before the book ended and I was able to follow everything that happened without rewinding.
