Babylon Sisters 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.

    Atlanta’s West End district has always been a haven and home to a coterie of unique characters - artists and thinkers, dreamers and doers. Folks here know one another’s names, keep their doors unlocked, and look out for their neighbors. Anyone planning to sell drugs, vandalize, or rob a little old lady should think twice before hitting this part of town. And Blue Hamilton, West End’s unofficial mayor and longtime protector, will see to it that you do. Blue wears many hats here. Blue is also the man you pay your respects to if you’re looking to set up shop in this urban enclave....
