Detroit author Dr. D. C. Wiggins is releasing her debut novel, “Their Darkest Hour.” The novel is a revealing tale chronicling the hidden complexities of relationships. Not wanting to perpetuate the romanticized myth of marriage, “The Darkest Hour” offers a tale of a woman who is emotionally malnourished mentally stressed and physically drained.
Inspired by true events, Dr. D. C. Wiggins tells the story of Desiree and Malik. The couple’s relationship begins to disintegrate following Malik’s recovery from a surgery to remove a brain tumor. Instead of leaning on Desiree for support during the difficult time, Malik shuts her out and finds himself more and more frustrated with his wife and himself. The couple’s journey takes them through the depths of temptation and forces them to learn the importance of truth and wisdom despite their circumstances.
