When Kimberla Lawson Roby burst onto the literary scene, her
fresh, wise, and witty voice grabbed the attention of
readers and critics everywhere. Now, with three Blackboard
bestsellers to her credit, including the #1 Casting the
First Stone, she is back with her most absorbing work
yet----IT'S A THIN LINE.
Sydney, Gina, and Rick are siblings who have always shared a
special bond, and yet their lives are as different as can
be. Responsible eldest sister Sydney has everything she's
ever wanted-a sexy husband, an adorable daughter, and
fulfilling work. But, little by little, the demands of her
writing career have mounted, leaving her little time or
energy for family life.
Meanwhile proud middle sister Gina is struggling to raise
her eight-year-old twins-and protect them from the
increasing fury of their volatile father.
Impulsive brother Rick, the baby of the family, is living
the high life-dodging commitment with his longtime
girlfriend and wondering if the grass is greener somewhere
When their beloved mother Delores suffers a debilitating
stroke, all three suddenly find the tenuous threads of their
individual lives at a breaking point. A dark childhood
secret threatens Sydney's secure world; Gina is swept into a
maelstrom of domestic violence; and Rick comes to a dramatic
crossroads in his relationship with his girlfriend. Worst of
all, the burden of caring for a parent is tearing the
siblings apart, shattering their faith in one another.
Now, as Sydney, Gina, and Rick struggle to overcome daunting
obstacles and rebuild their lives, they will discover
something they've never let themselves believe: that their
most stable-and most cherished-relationships have always
been with each other.
Once again, Kimberla Lawson Roby has woven a compelling saga
that could come only from a genuine storyteller. Alternating
between moments of poignancy and humor; filled with complex
and recognizable characters, IT'S A THIN LINE is sure to
delight her faithful readers, and win countless new fans.
