"Phoenix Dereaux" is a straight-up drama. Phoenix is a strong Black woman. You will take a journey with Phoenix. You will see how fragile life can be. You will learn that no matter how bad things may become the human spirit will always rise. You will also learn that everyone can't be helped. Phoenix will learn these things the hard way. Experience is the best teacher. If we don't have hard knocks, we won't learn. Life is truly a learning experience. I hope you will love Phoenix the way I do.
