    Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.But Darcy’s neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane “good girl,” steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life… with a baby on the way.

    Story

    The story is not as great as the first book. I just am so appalled that a character like Darcy who is so shamelessly arrogant still gets her way and ends up with a good man despite her God-awful character. Though she somewhat changes for the better, it's so disappointing that she does not find a true revelation within herself and that she still needs a man to fulfill her needs. The book is ok, but I think it could have been written better with a much more compelling plot.

    Delores Phillips' heart-rending debut novel is set in 1950s Georgia where most of Rozelle Quinn's 10 children can pass as white. Her brightest child, Tangy Mae, however, has the darkest skin of them all, and she longs to continue her education. But Rozelle thinks it's time for 13-year-old Tangy Mae to follow in her own footsteps and earn money "cleaning for whites" and bedding men at the "Farmhouse."

    Story

    It was a great book. I really hated the mother in this story. I wish for her character to die. It made me appreciate my mother even more.

    Michelle and her family rejoice when her father begins to regain consciousness after an unsuccessful suicide attempt. But a long journey awaits, as they seek to clear his name of the embezzlement charges that drove him to this desperate act. The days of their vigil at the hospital drag into weeks, and Michelle finds herself repeatedly drawn to the newborn nursery. Observing couples leave with tiny babes in their arms, her heart is stirred, and she begins to yearn for a child of her own.

    Story

    I thought I would love this book since the first was very interesting, but the character of Michelle is beyond annoying. If you are recently divorced, are having a hard time having children, or have a husband who has been unfaithful- please do not buy this audiobook. I feel that it will tear you apart and bring your spirits down from all the annoyance and frustration rather than lifting you up. A lot of the story lines and scenes are very unrealistic such as Michelle's dad attempting to talk- this would rarely happen with someone who has been intubated and in critical condition or has been injured in the head as Michelle's dad attempted to shoot himself. Michelle is such a very selfish character who only thinks of herself and is not sensitive to her husband's needs and feelings. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the story. Do yourself a favor, and skip this one if you are looking for joy, positive energy and love after a time of tragedy.
