Publisher's Summary

Meet Blake and Jasmine. They have been friends since they were two years old. Nothing has ever been able to come between them, not even the difference in their skin color. Blake's young life is hit with opposition at the hands of his abusive father, Frank, at the mere age of nine. He still refuses to give up his friendship with Jasmine.

Frank is not the only one who has a problem with their friendship. Jasmine's mother, Vanessa, is also not a fan but her resistance is a bit more subtle. By the time Blake and Jasmine make it to college, Vanessa's wish seems to be granted until Jasmine is knocked down by life and bad choices. Blake and Jasmine meet four friends that quickly become family even though each one of them is a different nationality.

Blake and Jasmine's families scramble to keep their skeletons from talking by using hatred, abuse, and deception to silence them. When life and death stand face to face, the collateral damage left behind will reveal what truly lies in each of their hearts. If they limit love due to their own prejudices they will never release their families from pasts that have haunted and tormented them for decades.

Dr. Sheridan Richards (Surviving Sunday) is called on to try and make sense of this family's secrets. Can she help them heal and move forward in the destiny that God has for them? She will have to face her own ugly truths about issues she didn't even know she had once she allows these strangers into her office in order to correctly respond to the madness that awaits her on Monday.

Emotion and Hope evoked

This should be a romance novel for the ages. Aligned with the classics of Pride and Prejudice or Romeo and Juliet.... only it’s about the complexity of love, hate, doubt and forgiveness . This story truly touched my heart and mind.

Christian Fairytale

I am writing this book review because I think that Audible doesn't always clearly categorize books and while the book description mentions God it doesn't convey how much this book is about religion/faith. This was the first time reading/listening to anything by Melinda Michelle so I was not aware of how much ministry her writing contains. As a person that is more spiritual than religious, I had to adjust my mindset to enjoy the story. The book addresses challenging topics and I guess this is where it loses a star for me because the way each situation get resolved is all by a miracle. By miracle I mean that everyone gets right with God and finds faith and that's what makes the story a fairytale more than the Angels and directives from God. I guess my gripe is that author doesn't navigate the story with real life characters or even ones that miss-use religion. I'm probably not clearly explaining my point but I still hope that my review adds transparency as to what to expect from this book. If you are a devoted Christian you most likely enjoy the story. If your spiritual and open minded to peoples beliefs you probably will like it as well but there may be a few eye-rolling moments. If you are a non-believer I would say skip this book. The narration of this book is hard to rate because I think that narrated did an ok job of giving each character their own voice but also felt that using those voices fed into stereotyping the characters.

This is a great love story!

This story all tho it is fiction is very powerful. This book confirms my beliefs that Love can transcend race, culture, pain, grief and so much more. Hatred of a race a culture or of a person is taught and you are not born with that Hatred. If we truly want change in this world it starts in your house! Awesome book!

Color Me Blind

Well, I listened to the audio version of Color Me Blind, and it was good. Highly and strongly recommend this book. It deals with several tough topics; one of them is a race. The book is relevant and relatable to what is going on in our country right now. At a certain point in the story, I started praying, and I wanted to weep. I have read this book before, in fact, I have the paperback, audiobook, and e-book. However, the audio book made the story live for me, I felt as if these characters were real, they felt like my friends. The way they openly discussed their fears, pain and their sadness were powerful. I rarely recommend a book, because I know everyone has different taste, but this is a book everyone must have and share with a friend. The author also proves you can write a story about different races even if you are of another race. And can deal with the subject of race in a powerful thought-provoking way. I love this God inspired story.

Great first audio book!!!

Loved the book and story line, but I was struggling with the narrator's voices of Jasmine and Vanessa. Why they had to be soooo country and deep.
