"You and I are not family, Sela. Let's get this
Her mother-in-law had never liked Sela Barnes â€” nor, for
that matter, had her father-in-law. They couldn't forgive
the unplanned pregnancy that had led to Sela's marriage to
their son, Rodney, and even twenty years and six beloved
grandchildren later, their hearts hadn't softened toward
their son's wife. Sela had given up trying to win them
over, convinced an African-American daughter-in-law would
never be acceptable to the senior Barneses. Then sudden
illness stole Rodney from her. Now his parents were only
too ready to cut Sela out of their lives â€” and take her
children for their own.
Torn between rage and grief, and determined to fight for
her sons and daughters, Sela turns to God for the first
time and gains a new perspective. The means of healing the
rift lies within the family, but only by letting go of the
past will they be able to embrace the future...together.
