Publisher's Summary

From award-winning author ReShonda Tate Billingsley comes an intriguing, heartfelt tale about long held family secrets, truths that won’t stay hidden, and how facing the ultimate loss can force us to find our own ways to make amends and heal....   

Raising four very different daughters on her own in rural Arkansas wasn't easy for Miss Pearly Bell. And she's always regretted that the sisters went their separate ways for good - and never wanted to see each other again. But when Pearly is stricken with a terminal illness, she summons them all home - determined to somehow help them get right with each other and forgive.... But that means dealing with past secrets and lies first.    

As the oldest sister, pastor's wife Maxine took her responsibility way too seriously - and never fails to judge everyone else. But a secret she can no longer keep will explode everything she stands for. Youngest sister Leslie is all about making a very different life with her new love - but she didn't expect a shattering past truth to be suddenly revealed and uproot everything she ever thought she knew. Elegant PR professional Stella and her earthy twin, Star, don’t see eye-to-eye on anything - and now a long-ago deception could wipe out their last chance at a relationship.   

Soon each sister must confront the illusions they've taken refuge in for so long and deal with each other woman-to-woman. But can building an all-too-fragile trust repair the damage done - and help them come together when they are needed most?

Felt like family

Very relatable as a Black woman. The only thing we pray is that our children acknowledge we did the best we could, and all out of love. If we are guilty of anything; it is going too far in an effort to shield our loved ones from a hard and cold world

All too familiar

Would've given it 5 stars but I haven't finished the book yet. The narrator was spectacular. She gave every character life with the shift in her voice through inflection and emotion. I grew up with four sisters so the dynamics of Miss Pearly's girls is relatable.

Don't Bother

I couldn't finish it. I don't know if it was the narrator or the story line but a bit of both. The characters were one dimensional and the story line a bit basic.

Very very good

This book was amazing and I could so relate to Leslie about colorism. I guess it’s the same story for many African American dark skinned women. We often suffer the same plight of being judged by our skin tone.

Beautiful

We need more stories like this where we talk about the dysfunctional family relationships. I’m sharing this with my biological sisters and my sister friends and my two daughters. This is a must read! I didn’t know what to expect but this has been confirmation to my soul!
