An eerie relationship of sadness, sorrow, and joy is projected by the author as she introduces you to their family, friends, and peers. The question that will emerge after reading this lifestyle novel is whether this is a work of fiction or is it reality cloaked in fiction. The author weaves a tale of poverty, passion, lust, suspense, and family tragedy. Whether this is a work of fiction or reality there are many lessons to be learned. In the venue of her companion books, "A Horrible Tale of Karma" and "Mary Jane," the saga of "Annie Mae" highlights and adds another chapter and dimension to the relationship between life, karma, and chaos.
