I love a book about a strong woman who struggles, but perseveres and that is exactly what I found in today's BOOK OF THE DAY. They Don't Hear Her Cries by Alethea Gibbs fits the bill and then some.
Zenobia Jordan lacked attention from her father which caused her to look for love in the wrong places. Heartbroken, yet determined to find herself, Zenobia became the woman she vowed she would never be. Many of life's traps became her new reality. Zenobia had one thing on her mind, survival.
