I give Burning Night: where the ashes of the past awaken the future by Nikki Broadwell, 5 stars.
Collie has finally had enough of her abusive husband so she flees. But at 40 years old, she doesn’t know exactly what to do or where to go. She decides to go on a journey to find who she really is. When her money is gone, she needs to find employment. There is only one thing she knows how to do — exotic dancing. But at her age? Can she survive? Will she find peace in her soul again?
This was an interesting book. Starting over from what you have known for so long is hard, and Collie does struggle at times. This book seems like it could be a biography, it is written so realistically. Collie is a great main character — flawed, but lovable too. There are many surprises you will not see coming. Collie has to endure so much. It also shows the stigma about exotic dancing. I would suggest adults only to read this since there are some events that could be disturbing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
