Publisher's Summary

Shawne Johnson’s emotionally stirring debut novel has been called “a rawer Waiting to Exhale.” Three African-American sisters, living in late 1960s Philadelphia, face issues such as drug addiction, racial tension, the Vietnam War, and the death of their father from lung cancer. Together they strive to avoid the dangers that surround them.

Better if it was a short story..I tried to listen

If you can read and enjoy Alice Walker then you might like this book...However the repeativeness of the author lost me on the base of the story...I was truly disappointed
