Ms. Thomas is a dynamic story-teller with three romantic and dramatic novels to her credit. She distinguishes herself from the genre popular among women by refusing to lace her work with profanity and sexually-explicit themes for the sake of notoriety and book sales.
Nevertheless, her first two novels "Color Me Jazzmyne" (2010) and "My Father's Colors" (2011), both reached the Top 100 on Amazon.com's Rhythm and Blues and Soul best-sellers list. "My Father's Colors" was a finalist pick during the 2011 USA Best Book Awards.
Ms. Thomas's books probe the ever-intriguing themes of race, family strife, love, teen pregnancy, friendship and abuse. And yet, her tales which seem to pre-stage current tabloid headlines are spelled out in ways that suit delicate moral tastes.

I finished this book in two reads! I was captivated by the main character, Precious Blue Johnson, as she discovers who she is and embarks on her path to an uncertain future. I love how Marian L. Thomas moves from past events to the present, weaving a tale of forbidden love, misguided choices and impossible dreams made possible. This is a story that I would share with young black girls to inspire them to jump over life's hurdles and go for their dreams anyway! Wonderful and inspiring!
