The critically acclaimed, #1 "Essence" bestselling author of "Player Haters" serves up his most powerful novel to date: a revelatory chronicle of an esteemed church family that has a whole lot of repenting to do.
Bishop T.K. Wilson, popular pastor of the largest African-American church in Queens, New York, has decided to run for borough president. But his family values platform is on shaky ground, because the Wilson kids are giving in to the same temptations as any other young adults. And their parents have no idea what's going on behind closed doors. . .
As the bishop's son, Dante Wilson is treated like royalty. Personable and smart, he's expected to assume his father's position one day. The problem is, Dante wants to be a lawyer, and that's not the only secret he's keeping.
Dante's younger sister, Donna, is as sweet as they come, yet she isn't exactly the virginal princess her beloved daddy thinks she is. And thanks to her suspicious, ambitious mother, he's about to find that out--and more.
Just as the Pandora's Box of unwelcome surprises seems empty, it turns out that even Bishop Wilson has some skeletons in his closet. Now all the Wilsons will have to face their demons. . .and discover what family values are really about.
