This is a lovely book, very catching title, was curious to know what the 10% was all about, love the story line, its will be very nice if it is actually acted.
Talks about a set of friends with the lack of husband syndrome except one who seemed to have it all initially. Adrain, the strongest character and my favorite, i really love that character. Muriel another wonderful character, with strong personality,though holding so much hurt and pain in, she at least knew when to let go and accept love.
I was surprised to see a novel by this author. I started reading and like what? Duh it says it on the cover as well. So far, it seems like an okay read but may skim through to get to the gist of it since I have so many other reads to complete in a couple of days.

Recommends it for: all
This book was recommended to me by a college friend who lives in Boston. The book is based in Chicago and covers a lot of "personal issues" that many African American women face with friendships, relationships, careers, and spirituality. It's an easy read.

I really like the development of the characters and the book and how relatable they are, but I was very underwhelmed with the ending. It could have at least had a sequel to reveal what happened with the characters.

Loved it and would suggest this to ANYONE dealing with any type of personal issues as well as forgiveness. I always think that because the book came out awhile ago I wish I would have read it then, but this book was right on time for my issues in life.

A pretty good read.

Even though this is an contemporary Christian title, it was not preachy. As a chick lit title, I would recommend this book.
