Publisher's Summary

Winner of two Black Writers Alliance Gold Pen Awards and an Honor Award from the American Library Association, Bernice L. McFadden has authored several national best-sellers, including Suger and This Bitter Earth.

Camilla's childhood was immersed in chaos and love, and steeped in the myth of perfection. As an adult, she never looked back, refusing to acknowledge the people and places that had scarred her so many years ago. But a legacy of cancer proves inescapable, forcing Camilla to embrace the past - no matter how painful it may be - and to salvage what is left of her love in order to save her daughter. As Camilla discovers the bittersweet limitations of motherhood and reconciliation, she also awakens an inspiring message about the mortality issues we all must face.

    "A multigenerational family story"

    There were a few times that the story seemed a little disconnected but for the most part it was well told. The story of how families cope and grow. They don't always thrive well but they grow whether nurtured well or not. They survive even though they may be fractured. Home is always home something always brings you back. Good story.
