Mary Monroe, the acclaimed author of The Upper Room,
has had her work praised as "warm, energetic, and charming"
by the Houston Post and "magnificent" byt the San
Francisco Chronicle. Now, in her new novel, God Don't
Like Ugly, she brings back to life the bond between two
girls from opposite sides of the track and the shattering
event that changes their lives forever.
Set in Ohio
during the 50's, 60's and 70's, this richly-drawn
coming-of-age tale is about a sexually abused young black
woman and the beautiful and diabolical best friend who comes
to her rescue. Resonating with clear-eyed wit and
uncompromising honesty, it is a tale of endurance, hope and
triumph, full of laughter and pure enjoyment.
