Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the sprawling homes and upscale townhouses of the exclusive, largely African American Prince Georges County, the lives of five women intersect-and the secrets, scandals, loves, and losses that ensue are par for the course where power, beauty, and wealth reside.

Barbara is the most influential woman in this swanky neighborhood, but shes got her hands full-one hand is busy dealing with her husbands wandering eye, while the other always needs a cocktail glass. Jolene is half of P.G. Countys number-two couple-and she desperately wants what she doesnt have: namely Barbaras husband. Pearl owns a hair salon and lives on the outskirts of the posh community with her son, Kenyatta. Shes not only juggling a growing business and a bad divorce, but now shes has to cope with Kenyattas less-than-ideal girlfriend. Candice is white and liberal, but her daughters new beau tests her beliefs-and opens a can of worms she never knew existed. Lee is a runaway teen, a girl whose only connection to her father is an old photo and the belief that hes well-off and waiting for her in . . .
