BLAME RANE was a quiet college student until a tragic fire shattered her world, destroying her family and home. To escape poverty, Blame exposes herself to domestic violence, prostitution, drugs and incarceration. As a single parent, she moves from welfare role to employment role, traveling from the grimy streets of D.C. to plush condos in Virginia; to rural North Carolina, where she discovers the meaning of self-empowerment, self-trust and unconditional love.
Blame is never alone through her journey. Three amazing birds tail her every move. This crow, cardinal and pigeon were an African-American, a Native American and a Caucasian woman in life. They are all the blood ancestors of Blame Rane. The birds honestly reflect on their incredible lives, taking us on an epic tour of American history! Though they are centuries old, the birds continue to grow right alongside Blame Rane.
Blame Rane is the “every Black woman’s book”, combining street literature with historical context, drama and suspense with comedy and inspiration. RENE’ O’SHEA covers the gambit from exploring mother-daughter relationships to advancing the agenda of black economic freedom. Filled with hopelessness and hope, the saga of Blame Rane is destined to become an American classic.
Blame encounters joy, confusion, jealousy, love, friendship, addiction, disease and opportunity on her whirlwind tour of life. As a Black woman (according to the one-drop rule), she battles classism, racism, and materialism…seizing passion, dignity and wisdom along the way. While it’s always easy to blame the rain, at some point a woman learns to take responsibility for her life. Will Blame?
Travel this adventurous and uplifting journey with Blame Rane and her family as she opens her mind through the power of reading, her soul through the power of prayer, and her heart to the power of true love!
