Summary
The main characters in this compelling debut are Nadia, whose mother committed suicide when Nadia was 17; Luke, the pastor's son she fell in love with as he healed from a devastating injury; and motherless Aubrey, who is damaged in less obvious ways. Set in Southern California and narrated by the elder church women of their black community, the novel provides the perspectives of both these wiser, cooler heads as well as the firsthand, painful experiences of Nadia, Luke, and Aubrey. Betrayal, loss, casual racism, and the long-term consequences of difficult decisions follow the three throughout the 17 years this novel encompasses. There's something here for fans of New Adult fiction, coming of age stories, and literary fiction alike. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
