Critic Reviews

"Married to one of Washington, D.C.'s, most powerful African American attorneys, mother of two wonderful grown children, and owner of an elegant bridal gift shop, Morgana Johnson-Wells seems to have it all until her mother suddenly passes away and she learns that her husband has been unfaithful.... Alers' engaging tale is rich in family secrets, lost love, and women who never forget their strength, or their roots." (Booklist)

Yawn

This book was really boring. I couldn't remember listening to it the first time and tried to listen to it again. After her mothers death Mo discovers her mothers journal and realize her parents didn't have the life she believed they had. After finding out her husband is having an affair Mo has to take time to find herself again and forgive.
