Born with dark skin into a family that prides themselves on their light complexion, and deprived of familial love, affection and security, Nola falls victim to her fatherís abusive behaviour.
 
From the day she was born Nola Chambers is rejected by those she should most trust. Born with dark skin into a family that prides themselves on their light complexion, Nola grows up abandoned and perceived as worthless. Deprived of familial love, affection and security, she falls victim to her fatherís abusive behaviour and struggles though societyís harsh judgements of her black skin.
 
Trying to overcome the brutalities in her life, she meets Dahlia Day. Their friendship opens another world for Nola, a world of tenderness and compassion, a world where she can rise above prejudice.
 
Dew Angels is a heartbreaking, courageous novel of broken lives healed through courage and hope.
