For Evan Murdoch, the bad news just won't stop. As he battles an attempted murder charge, he's on the verge of getting forced out of the family corporation - and fears he can't trust his new wife, Lelia. Enter savvy family matriarch Ida, whose wild-card schemes might be the answer to his prayers - or lead to disaster like he's never seen.

I love the story and the ending for all of the characters, but there were too many long pauses during narration.

In this moving collection of thought-provoking essays infused with her unique wisdom and deep humor, Union tells astonishingly personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism, and fame. Union tackles a range of experiences, including bullying, beauty standards and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents.

I love Gabrielle's personality! I love how she spoke of her struggles with colorism, being liked, not feeling good enough and the lesson she took from each experience. this is a great listen, I recommend everyone grab more wine. ;-)
