Multicultural African-American | Women's Fiction

Thirty years ago, three high school friends were closer than sisters, but a dark, emotional secret tore them apart.  Now, back together at their high school reunion, each of them are tormented and haunted that their greatest fear will come to light.

 

Renetta Jones' childhood had been anything but happy.  After her mother walked out on them, Renetta was left to live with an unsympathetic father and her own insecurities.  She fell for the first man to come along after high school, and spent years in an abusive marriage with a man named Vincent, who used her secret to control and punish her. That is, until he suffered an untimely stroke, under questionable circumstances. 

 

Phyllis Neville sacrificed everything for her career, including her marriage to a man she'll love forever, and a positive relationship with her adult daughter.  But when she is passed over for the promotion of a lifetime, Phyllis begins to question her commitment to the company. 

 

Freddie Palmer is bored by the routine that her life has become.  Married thirty years to her husband, Don, the two of them have become empty-nesters and Freddie is anxious to start the next phase of her life.  After meeting successful author, Bianca Hightower, at a local bookstore signing, Freddie decides to take her passion for reading to the next level and signs up for writing classes being taught by her new author friend.  But Bianca sees potential in Freddie that transcends simply writing, and introduces her to the kinds of experiences a woman like Freddie never even knew existed.

 

Tasha Darden has lived her life in foster care, and has finally gathered up the courage to try to find her birth mother. Renetta, Phyllis and Freddie are about to come face to face with their past, and one of their lives will be changed forever.
