Picked it up because it seemed interesting considering I had read the author but after the first couple pages, I couldn't get with it.

I heard good things about this book and knew I needed to check it out for myself - what I found blew me away. Here we have a cast of characters that focuses on Treva, a wife and mother but mainly a career lawyer, who has her world pulled out from underneath her when they make a move for her husband's sake and she can't get her career going again. She is "forced" into a Bible study by her sister with 4 other women who she can't stand, barely tolerates being a mom and resents (and rightfully so) h ...more

Much of this book is about the nuances in shades of color, mostly browns. Mama was light-skinned and gave birth to two daughters who were both different shades, Mama Patsy preferring the lighter of the two, Jillian. The older and darker daughter, Treva gave birth to three daughters, each a different shade. And on and on it goes.

It's also about Treva looking for a position of stature as a high-powered attorney -- something that she can flaunt before her mother whom she calls by her first name, P

Life Changing!!!

This book is amazing, I can see some parallels between my mindset and Treva's. As I read through this book, it felt as though God was sharing with me, who I am to Him and that my value and worth stem from me being made in His image, not my outward appearance and possessions. I pray that I get an opportunity to join a group like the one in the book, where I can get with other sisters of the faith to encourage and push one another closer to Christ!

This book is wonderful. The main character Treva is transformed through family, new friends and God. Awesome Christian fiction. I found it to be a real page turner.

I'm glad my wife brought this novel to my attention. A compelling first novel by Kimberly Cash Tate. Both moving and insightful. A must read for men, if you want to know how to treat a woman. Kimberly's memoir, "More Christian than African American" is a must read.
