Publisher's Summary

Regina Moore and Karen Jackson, lifelong best friends, are living the kind of lives about which most women only fantasize. With beautiful homes, fulfilling careers, and two adoring husbands, their joy could not be greater, their worlds could not be richer. But suddenly, shattering truths about the loving men they thought they knew turn happiness into anguish and rage.

For Karen and Regina, nothing they believed in or cherished can ever be the same as it was. Yet in the painful process of starting over, new doors will open, and two women who once had it all will rediscover the power of honesty and friendship...and learn the true scope and meaning of love.

Not my favorite!

I didn't like the narrator, and I really didn't care for the story. It was slow-moving in the beginning and the drama wasn't that good. I expected more because I love the Curtis Black series.

Not a Christian Book

The storyline was fair and predictable. I purchased this book under the category of "Christian Fiction." After listening to the book, the crushing was definitely not Christian! The ending was as expected, no suspense or praises!!

Not that great!

I was very disappointed with this novel. This story was very predictable. It's the typical black folk novel with cheating husbands.

Not for me.

I had a hard time getting hooked into this storyline. It was a book club read but I didn't make it past the first few chapters.

Behind closed doors

I really enjoyed listening to this book, I’ve read it in 1997 but it was even better today.
