While growing up amid humble surroundings in Roxobel, North Carolina, Alice Omoti begins her sophomore year of high school without any idea that one decision is about to change the course of her life forever.
In her memoir, Alice details her childhood and adolescent years-years that are abruptly transformed the night she attends a football game with a friend. After fifteen-year-old Alice meets fellow student James "Ruff Dog" Ruskins, she ignores a foreboding feeling and accepts a ride with him to a party. A few hours later, Ruff Dog rapes her, impregnating Alice with her first child. Left with no other options, Alice is forced to marry the man she hates with every fiber of her being. Trapped in a faux marriage ruled by physical and mental abuse, Alice unsuccessfully attempts to escape numerous times. But fifteen years later, just as Alice thinks she has finally discovered true happiness, tragedy strikes and causes Alice to question everything-including her faith.
Black in My Rainbow shares the intimate story of one woman's unforgettable journey through the darkness of her troubles and into the light of God's love, where she finally takes control of her destiny.
