Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the national bestselling author of God Don't Like Ugly--a rare novel that inspires laughter, tears, and repeat readings. Wracked with guilt at having caused the accident that confines Burl Tupper to a wheelchair, Carmen Taylor chooses to sacrifice her own happiness to Burl's needs. Even if it means watching the one true love of her life, Chester Sheffield, end up with her best friend, Desiree Lucienne. But Carmen's loyalty to Desiree goes back a long way, and she's not about to let a man get in the way of their friendship. Then, on a sultry, reckless moonlit night, Carmen commits a desperate crime of passion, and, with Desiree, hits the road running. But she can't run from the truth she's avoided for years--and finally, Carmen confronts her demands, head-on. She has two choices--living a life on the lam, or returning to Belle Helen, the place where it all began...and the only place in the world where she can lay down her burdens and seize her chance at love and redemption.

Synopsis:

Monroe's "Gonna Lay Down My Burdens" opens with a bang when Carmen Taylor intervenes in a violent lovers' quarrel between her friends Chester and Desiree, and Chester winds up dead. Most of the novel is told in flashback, following Carmen and Chester's ill-fated attraction to one another.

Synopsis:

- God Don't Like Ugly was a Blackboard and Essenc(R) bestseller for three months, rising high as #4, and it won the PEN Oakland National Literary Award.

Gonna Lay Down My Burdens includes a Reading Group Guide and was a Main Selection for Black Expressions Book Club.
