Publisher's Summary

Catherine Sanderson and her daughter, Phoebe, have always been as close as a mother and daughter could be, except for one secret between them: the identity of Phoebe's father.

Catherine, busy working with refugee and immigrant women through her small firm, Babylon Sisters, has taken on a powerful new client. She doesn't have much time for Phoebe's complicated questions of paternity - that is, until Phoebe's real father, B. J., a renowned investigative reporter, shows up in town to work on a story connected to Catherine.

Now she must finally reveal the truth she's been withholding from Phoebe for 18 years, bringing them all together in ways they never could have imagined.

Lots of back story.

I like Pearl Cleage. I find her writing soothing. this story seemed kind of thrown together. I didn't get to know any of the characters very well.

A masterpiece!

What a story! Exciting, angering, hopeful, loving, thoughtful, provocative, meaningful, timely... Such a well written, exquisitely performed piece which engulfs the reader in emotions, pushes them to question, and drops Pearl(s) of wisdom along a journey, just the way a great piece of literature should. Thank you Pearl Cleage!!
