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?

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.

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

Good story

The audio sounds like the narrator is actually reading and not acting. The book was sort of predictable and really didn’t get interesting until after the climax which at the end of the book. The listener has to be patient to the very end. It’s a good story about a strong black matriarch. But that’s not revealed until the end of the book.

Drags on a little

it would have been more enjoyable if the narrator had done her homework and learned how to correctly pronounce El Dorado and Smackover. her incorrect pronunciation was like fingernails on a chalk board.
