Book Synopsis
Most love stories depict the ambitious young man willing to climb any mountain, cross
any river, and dip within the depths of the earth to win the heart of the young lady that captured
his eye at first sight. While such plots are warm and may even cause goose bumps to rise,
December Valley broadens the scope of love and uniquely paints a vivid picture of Brian, a
hardworking African – American who has no children of his own, but wholeheartedly embraces
Alicia’s teenage children Marcus and Bree as if they were his own. Unfortunately, in spite efforts
of grooming Marcus into a reliable young man with good mannerism, and playing an active role
in Bree’s life with hopes that she will go on to become a respectable young lady, Brian’s
disciplinary views are often times depicted as pessimistic. For the love he has for Alicia, Brian
endures all that comes with her, including her defiant children.
To add to rejection Brian loses his job, putting him in a vulnerable position as a man.
This creates riffles between he and Alicia, the woman he hoped to one day marry, but after
another heated argument things take a turn for the worst and Alicia is done. She’s had enough of
the typical strong black man and all that comes with them, the nagging, debating, and running.
The once compatible couple is torn apart and Brian is left standing outside of the home he
once contributed to while Alicia moves on. Brian finds himself jobless, resulting to homelessness
during the cold month of December.
One night, while out on the town with girlfriend Lexas, Alicia meets and becomes
acquainted with Trevor, a prominent young man making moves in Atlanta who strangely
intrigues Alicia and has his way with her in a short period of time. Unfortunately, Trevor
disappoints Alicia in the least likely of ways, and like most sisters, she keeps it moving, enduring
the ups and downs in life and making her children a priority above all else. Just when she
thought she could get over Brian, she receives word that he continues to struggle bouncing back
in life. Alicia sets her pride aside, acknowledging that life without Brian has been dark and
lonely, and memories of what love was sends her on a search which leads her to skid row
Atlanta.
After acknowledging their wrongs and making amends, the couple and their children
move forward, nevertheless they’re not exempt from life’s continued challenges. Real life
continues to unfold, but lessons about what realistic love is and the need for discipline and
compromise reinforces why they were tailor-made for one another.
Ready-made relationships aren’t so bad when those involved know and honor their roles,
for in doing so, they honor and empower the family unit rather than damage and drain it.

The book definitely smiled upon this December! it's a page turner and compels one to consider their decision making in previous and/or current relationships. It also testifies to the reality that there are still a few good black men out here who are open for a committed relationship in spite the trials that come with it.
