Five Star Review: Selena Rivera is a Haitian born immigrant living in the United States, who has fought insurmountable odds to make a way for herself. Married to a loving, supportive husband, mother to a rambunctious two year old and a best-selling author, Selena is living the American dream. Then trouble strikes as issues from her past come around, seeking to rock her entire world.
Always one to depend solely on herself until issues hit the fan, Selena struggles to keep a careful balance in her life; juggling family, needy friends and an unexpected catastrophe while she deals with her own issues – not knowing if her life would be turned completely upside down because of it. Continuing on her spiritual journey of enlightenment, she has a first-hand chance to put all of the things she has learned into practice as she is tried time and again. When it all boils down, she learns some valuable lessons about herself and those who are in her life.
Luna is a great story teller and 5-star writer, without question. Her characters are like real people with relatable issues and flaws, even while being decent people who are finding their own way. Luna has tremendous talent as a writer and I look forward to reading more of her work.
Happy to give My Rules, My Life 5 stars!
