Johnson deftly exposes the many faces of patterns of abuse and how the ’unseen hand’ perpetuates and feeds the demons within. Author, Toni Ann Johnson writes with authority about the world in which the characters in her novel, Remedy for a Broken Angel, live as they endure an endless struggle for the truth. As you read this work, you might just hear the strains of jazz composer Charles Mingu’ music seeping throughout Johnson’s novel in its refrains and riffs of the complications of relationships.’—Chanticleer Book Reviews Serena is a Bermudan jazz singer whose demons lead her to abandon her daughter Artie. Artie’s anger eventually drives her to Serena’s younger lover, Jamie L’Heureux, a jazz superstar. The spirit of Charles Mingus thrums throughout the story as these two women tangle in a syncopated mother-daughter relationship.
