Publisher's Summary

From the national best-selling and award-winning ReShonda Tate Billingsley comes this gripping and emotional exploration of the complex bond between mother and daughter.

From the time Brooke Green was seven years old, she has lived with the pain of losing her mother. Her father has done the best job he could in raising her, but a piece of her always felt empty. On the day of her father's funeral, her grandmother breaks the shocking news: Her mother, Sarah, is very much alive. She abandoned her family because she claimed she wasn't fit for motherhood.

After doing some research, Brooke discovers her mother is living in Atlanta, enjoying a great career...and a brand-new family. Stunned, Brooke doesn't know if she wants answers or revenge against the mother who abandoned her. When she meets Sarah's husband, Tony, Brooke sees the perfect way to make her mother pay. But her plan for revenge just may leave everyone in danger and end up costing Brooke more than she ever bargained for.

What's done in this he dark Always come to light!

Revenge is a double bladed sword, it cuts both ways. This story is rich in examples of what Momma and them would tell you as a child about jealousy, hatred and selfishness. One feeds off another and leads to unintentionally consequences.
Sarah put the ball in motion marrying a man she did not love and ending up with a child she was not mature or ready to love.
Jacob kicks the ball farther with a lie.
Falling in love and attempting to hold onto a person who is not in love with you and want's a different life. Lead to a run away wife and mother. Telling Brooke her mother is dead and faking a memorial service is well over the top.
Broke learns of her father's lie after he apologizes on his deathbed. Her grandmother is forced into doing the deed and now Brooke is obsessed with finding her mother.
These actions sweep far and wide of the origin. The fall out and consequences are far more than anyone expected. Has Brooke found her mother or lost her way!

Awesome story line

I really enjoyed this book. I wished it was longer. But I feel like she really didn’t want to marry Trent anyway so I think it ended up just the way it should have. I will certainly purchase more of her books

page turner

I loved this book. heartbreaking at times, I wanted to jump in the story and tell her to rethink her methods of dealing with her pain.
