Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Ruth-Miriam Garnett pens an exceptional tale of the wealthy and prominent Cates family. Lealia is the inspiring story of three sisters who, despite their good upbringing, marry worthless husbands.

Rebecca marries Jake, a womanizer; Claudia marries Timothy, a drunk; and Gracelyn marries Bernard, an envious and selfish man. None of the men respect their wives until things take a turn for the worse. Jake has an accident at work and sustains head injuries, Timothy drinks excessively and suffers from tremors, and Bernard is diagnosed with bone cancer and is constantly in pain. Seeking comfort, the sisters bond together, move back to their childhood home, begrudgingly care for their husbands, and start a new life while also becoming role models for the women in their community.

Full of hope, Laelia is unique and inspiring. Karen Chilton's exceptional narration captures the ambiance of this inspiring and appealing story.
