"A captivating tale to savor about a woman whose buried past
threatens her picture perfect family life. Felicia is a
wonderfully flawed, compelling main character, one who has
stayed with me long after I finished the book. A winning
novel from a writer to watch." -Benilde Little, bestselling
Felicia Lyons, a stressed out stay-at-home mom, struggles to
sprint ahead of the demands of motherhood while her husband
spends long days at the office. Felicia taps, utters mantra,
and breathes her way through most situations, but on some
days, like when the children wonâ€™t stop screaming her name
or arguing over toy trucks and pretzel sticks, she wonders
what it would be like to get in her car and drive away.
Then one evening the telephone rings, and in a split second
the harried motherâ€™s innocent fantasy becomes a hellish
reality. The call pulls her back into a life sheâ€™d rather
forget. Felicia hasnâ€™t been completely honest about her
upbringing, and her deception forces her return to the
Philadelphia of her childhood, where she must confront the
family demons and long buried secrets she thought she had
From a phenomenal fresh voice in fiction, comes the
compelling story of what happens when the dream falls apart.
Sadeqa Johnson's Second House from the Corner is an
unforgettable tale of love, loss, rediscovery, and the
growing pains of marriage.
