Denial isn't just a river. . .
Raedella Rollins left the dusty town of Sweet Poke,
Arkansas, on a Texas-bound bus with four mismatched
suitcases, a newsroom job offer, and a promise to herself:
never look back. Now, less than a decade later, she's a top-
rated talk show host, a celebrity news anchor, and fiancĂ©e
to Houston's star councilman. The future looks bright for
Rae, and Sweet Poke is nothing more than a distant memory.
. . . and she's paddling as fast as she can.
But now that she's reached the top, her ragtag family comes
knocking. Mama Tee, the grandmother who raised her, calls
with unwelcome family updates; and Shondella, her jealous
older sister, guilts her into sending money. To Rae,
nothing could be worse than an unexpected reunion with her
over-the-top relatives. But when her picture-perfect life
turns out to be an illusion, Rae's family calls her back to
Sweet Poke and to the life she left behind. Can Rae let go
of the pain of her childhood and open her heart to the
healing that only faith and family can provide?
