The Color of the Heart Written by Tijuana Layne.
The life of a mixed-African heritage woman takes on a whole new meaning when her well-adjusted, middle class world is shattered as a result of a tragic accident. Brutally snatched from her, are the lives of the only two people she cares about - her husband and child.
Left alone to face the tattered fragments of her old world, Sad Eyes withdraws into a self-induced isolation - losing herself in a vicious cycle of self-blame and abuse. In a futile attemp to obliterate the nightmare of this inescapable tragedy from memory - she drowns her rage, pain and self-hatred in alcohol.
In her fractured, fragmented state, Sad Eyes encounters the Russian - a man who unknowingly to her is heavily involved in the Human Trafficking Trade. They connect through mutual personal loss and fall in love. As their Love and Trust grows, greed and betrayal resurface as Comrade - an Eastern European crime lord - uses Sad Eyes as a tool to destroy the Russian.
Sad Eyes is once again thrown into an emotional roller coaster where she is forced to question her love, courage and strength - confronting her past, present and future - once and for all.
Ultimately Sad Eyes is the story of hope amidst tragedy and loss.
