Publisher's Summary

James made a mistake. Desiree made a decision. Raymond took interest. Tina took action. They all ended up with scars. There is an inevitable conflict between sacred law and moral truth, when real life is a thorn in your side. If love is a battlefield and we all get scars...
These were my reminders...my necessary thorns...
Meet Desiree Elizabeth Taylor. Desiree Elizabeth Taylor (Desi) is a sexy, smart, and no-nonsense kind of woman. Some would say she is wholesome - while others would gladly call her a bitch. After years of living the life of the perfect, wife, friend and business savvy know-it-all, Desi had a secret that would destroy everything she'd worked so hard to achieve. The cast of characters in her life are starting to unravel and Desi is losing control fast! Her marriage is on the rocks and her best friend is turning into a spiteful enemy.
What happens when Desiree decides its better to ask forgiveness than to ask permission?

a great story

What did you love best about Those Necessary Thorns?

It's so true to real life, some one hurts you and when you can't take no more you her back.
That the people you think you can trust rant always who they seem.

What did you like best about this story?

That you can't ever trust anyone.
Or beware of who you trust.

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No not yet

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All.of it kept me on the edge of my seat. Don't forget to trust your love ones including yourself.

Any additional comments?

You must listen to do this story, it does give life some perspective. We all go thru things at one time or another.
