7:10 by Dominique Wilkins is a thought provoking story about a woman, Charlotte, and her twin daughters, Adele and Estelle, who are forced out of their home when a surprise Charlotte plans for her husband, Greg, goes wrong in a way she could have never seen coming. Greg is abusive towards Charlotte and she decides to leave Greg for good when he kicks her out after her surprise falls flat. As Charlie tries to put her life together, she finds God and tries to raise her daughters the best she can on her own. She meets a man the complete opposite of Greg, and falls in love with him. As Charlotte and her daughters start to heal and find peace with their lot in life, tragedy strikes and the twins start to heal with the help of their religious grandmother, Ms. Sheri. Through more tragedy and grief, one girl manages to overcome it and heal to become a successful member of society.

7:10 by Dominique Wilkins is well written but a little hard to follow at times. The story line jumps and leaps and doesn't always go into detail about how the characters got to where they are and what brought them to that point. Despite some leaps in the story, 7:10 is a very good read and shows that you can overcome any tragedy and all obstacles if you want to and work at it. The characters experience extreme loss and overcome the tragedies through religion and family support, which a lot of people don't have. While books like this are written often, this book stands out because I think it shows a little more insight into the average person and how one can be strong even though life altering events have happened.
