Sister Souljah, the New York Times bestselling author of The Coldest Winter Ever and Midnight, delivers her most compelling and enlightening story yet. With Midnight and The Meaning of Love, Souljah brings to her millions of fans an adventure about young, deep love, the ways in which people across the world express their love, and the lengths that they will go to have it.

Powerful and sensual, Midnight is an intelligent, fierce fighter and Ninjutsu-trained ninja warrior. He attracts attention wherever he goes but remains unmoved by it and focuses on protecting his mother and sister and regaining his family’s fortunes. When Midnight, a devout Muslim, takes sixteen-year-old Akemi from Japan as his wife, they look forward to building a life together, but their tumultuous teenage marriage is interrupted when Akemi is kidnapped and taken back to Japan by her own father, even though the marriage was consummated and well underway.

“There’s not one drop of inferiority in my blood,” Midnight says as he first secures his mother, Umma, and sister, Naja, before setting off on a global journey to reclaim his wife. Midnight must travel across three countries and numerous cultures in his attempt to defeat his opponent. Along this magnificent journey he meets people who change him forever, even as he changes them. He encounters temptations he never would have imagined and takes risks that many a lesser man would say no to, all for the women he loves and is sworn to protect.

Very interesting reading about the different cultures. Some things were unrealistic to me but it is fiction so I guess anything goes. Good read!

A Love Like This
March 3rd, 2013
The vow of marriage is sacred no matter the tell religion, race, or creed. I try not to get offended or upset when a man asks where my man is, if I'm married.. When I say no, the question is almost always "why?" These same men aren't asking me to be polite, they see my outer beauty, finesse, maybe my soul shining through, and want it for themselves. Yet, they are unable, unwilling, and not suitable to have my hand. I'm a simple woman; understand that simple refers to my preferences and not my mind. I need certain things: security, loyalty, honesty, a kindred love. Even if it isn't solid, it will grow with the right foundation, nurturing, and light. Love doesn't look a certain way talk, dress, or maneuver like the next. It knows no bounds. It is selfless not selfish. I am living my life as a strong black woman knowing that one day I will have my mate.. My very own Mayonaka Ryoshi. This book is bomb! Yes, it's fiction, but it was realistic. Not everyone can have Midnight, but we as women can present ourselves with more grace and quiet elegance. In my experience, that DOES turn men on more than the exposed flesh. I'm not turning to Muslim faith, but I respect it when it is executed properly. It is not too risque or unconventional to me. It is simple. If this book doesn't change the way you look and see the things happening around you or want to change yourself for the better, than I believe you only read it to say you did and didn't capture everything for all it's worth.
