She was the youngest sister that at 15 did a lot of growing up. She lost her dad at 10, her big sister at 15 and a sick mom. But the worst was the man who married her, got heart pregnant, left her in New Orleans to fends for herself. She did things to survive but met a wonderful man who she married. He died and she has to face all of her past and age the man who wronged her.

This is an FANTASTIC Book. This is a MUST READ. This book is a Page Turner. This Book will make you cry, but a couple of parts will make you laugh. Will read more of her books. You WILL NOT WANT To PUT THIS BOOK DOWN.

Jennifer Blake, PB-B @ 1989, 3/94. A novel about a woman whose first love, a cruel young man, is now running for governor of Louisiana, and her knowledge of his true character would keep him from realizing his dreams. Okay.
