The Law of Moses - Blog Stop and Review

The Law of Moses
Release: 11/27/14

Cover design by: Hang Le


If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know its coming, and it will hurt. But youll be able to prepare.

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten oclock news the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like hed been broken at birth. I knew that wasnt what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.

It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.

And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didnt stay away.

And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all...a love story.

Sav's 5 star review

OH MY GOD!  OH MY GOD! This book that I just read is literary perfection. No other words will do. It was beautiful and flawless and so very carefully constructed. Each tiny shard fitting perfectly where it should. Each secret revealing itself JUST. AT. THE PERFECT. TIME. I laughed. I smiled, oh I smiled so much at my kindle. I shed tears. I had fears. THEN she hit me with it. I knew IT was coming even before I understood what the IT was. I just knew whatever it was that it was gonna be big and boy oh boy. I lost my breath. Literally. Gone. Sobs racking my body and me rocking back and forth in my bed with tissues. Then... it ALL fell into place. Everything made sense. I was able to breathe. I was able to smile. Then... the tears came again. I was LOST in this world of cracked people and bright splashes of color and no matter how painful I HAD to be there and I never wanted to leave. This was not 'just a book' this was so much more. This was an experience. A life lesson.

 THIS. BOOK. IS. EVERYTHING! I'm not going to give any details. I refuse to spoil this beautiful story. I will say this. I did cry alot. Like alot. I'm an emotional gal. Don't twist it tho. Every tear was not shed for pain. I cried for a multitude of reasons. Here is my reasons. 

1- Beauty. This book is full of it. Pure, raw, beauty.
3- Pain
4- fear
6- Second chances
7- life
8- cracks
9- color, lots and lots of color.
And last but not least, I cried for Batman - THIS was probably my favorite and when you get it. When you finally understand this, please pm me so we can cry together. Because once you know I promise you, you will start to crack and the colors will take hold ♡

The Law of Moses is one of those books that you never want to end. It keeps you reeling and it keeps you feeling from start to finish. 
I know I know. This was insanely long and probably seems over exaggerated but I swear it's not. If this is a book you choose to read then I promise you that you will understand. You won't see me post  like this often. I only do it when I consider a book to be ground breaking or superb for lack of better words. Trust me BUY THIS BOOK!!!! Let it change YOUR life too!!
