Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Catherine Sanderson seems to have it all: a fulfilling career helping immigrant women find jobs, a lovely home, and a beautiful, intelligent daughter on her way to Smith College. What Catherine doesnt have: a father for her child- and shes spent many years dodging her daughters questions about it. Now Phoebe is old enough to start poking around on her own. It doesnt help matters that the mystery man, B.J. Johnson-the only man Catherine has ever loved-doesnt even know about Phoebe. Hes been living in Africa.

Now B.J., a renowned newspaper correspondent, is back in town and needs Catherines help cracking a story about a female slavery ring operating right on the streets of Atlanta. Catherine is eager to help B.J., despite her hearts uncertainty over meeting him again after so long, and confessing the truth to him-and their daughter.

Meanwhile, Catherines hands are more than full since shes taken on a new client. Atlantas legendary Miss Mandeville-a housekeeper turned tycoon-is eager to have Catherine staff her housekeeping business. But why are the steely Miss Mandeville and her all-too-slick sidekick Sam so interested in Catherines connection to B.J.? What transpires is an explosive story that takes her world-not to mention the entire city of Atlanta-by storm.

From the New York Times bestselling author of What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day . . . comes another fast-paced and emotionally resonant novel, by turns warm and funny, serious and raw. Pearl Cleages ability to create a gripping story centered on strong, spirited black women and the important issues they face remains unrivaled.

From the Hardcover edition.
