I have read all of Shana Burton's books and I believe Flaws and All is by far my favorite.

I never knew so much drama could exist within a group of just 5 women. It was interesting to read and visualize the relationship between such close friends, and see the things that people will say to one another - in the name of love and friendship.
Reggie and Lawson are sisters. Reggie just turned 21, and gets a new job where the money is just flowing. Lawson has a 14-year old son from a previous relationship and has been dating the same man for the last 10 years. Now I've never been married but one would think that by the 3rd or 4th year they would have gotten married if it was meant to be. Right?
Sullivan appears to be a bitter gold digger who latched on to the preacher man for his money, but didn't really think about the role that a preacher's wife should play in the church and in the community. They've been together for 9 years, but there doesn't appear to be much love in the relationship. What do you do when you're the preacher's wife and you're not really feeling your husband, or his parishioners, anymore?
Kina's husband has been abusing her for years, but her best friends haven't realized it. What type of friends don't know that their best friend is being abused? Or do they know, and haven't said anything about it?
Lastly, there's Angel. Her husband left her 8 years ago when she was pregnant, and she hasn't quite gotten over it. It's interesting to see how she reacts when she comes face-to-face with her past. Honestly, the best part of the book, the most "real" part was Angels' reaction when this happens. It wasn't the happiest part of the book, but it was the most real in my opinion.
I was surprised at what people will say to one another - meaning how your girlfriends will voice their opinion, both welcome and unwelcome, when they think you're doing the wrong thing.

Format: Paperback
I have read all of Shana Burton's books and I believe Flaws and All is by far my favorite. The bond of friendship...sisterhood is so strong throughout the entire book; even when they said something that was offensive to the others. While reading, I thought about how much of ourselves we truly share with the people we call our friends. Do we allow all sides of ourselves to show?

Kina, Sullivan, Lawson, Angel, and Reginell are friends until the very end. They have their own personal issues, but that does not stop them from giving their opinion to each other. Each one of them has to accept the trials and tribulations in store for them. They have to depend on their faith in God to get them through it all.
Sullivan is a preacher's wife who is looking for adventure. Her method of finding the very thing that excites her may not be the wisest, but it is her decision to make. How will her choices affect her life as First Lady of her husband's church?

Lawson has all her ducks in a row. She has the best man in her life, an awesome teenage son, and her sister, Reginell, has a well-paying job. When her son's father re-enters her life, she finds her perfect world being tossed upside down. If matters were not bad enough, Lawson finds out what Reginell has been up to. She is not happy at all. When all is said and done will Lawson still feel as though she is in complete control of her life?

Nine years ago, Angel's ex-husband dumped her for another woman. She decided to dedicate all her time to her patients and their families. She never leaves anytime for idle thoughts or room for romance in her life. However, when Angel comes face-to-face with the woman who stole her husband from her, the halo comes off.

This is the first "girlfriend" book I've read in a long time and thoroughly enjoyed it!

With precision, Shana Burton created real characters with real flaws. Lawson, Reginell, Sullivan, Angel, and Kina, although, the majority of the time didn't make the ideal choices, any woman who has ever loved or longed to be loved, can relate.

I appreciate the fact that the author not only pushed the message of true forgiveness, but also one of self-responsibility/accountability.

This was my first book by Shana Burton but it want be my last. Flaws and All was full of real life drama from beginning to end. We all can relate to at least one or more of the chartacters in this book. Angel was my favorite character. The power of forgiveness.

Format: Paperback
"Their lives will never be the same." I read the back cover and eagerly opened the book to see what life had in store for these five sisters from Savannah, GA. Flaws and All, takes the reader on a journey through each of the characters lives from: the ultimate act of betrayal, and the tragic consequences of anger, to the revelation of secrets, and the sacredness of true forgiveness. I was immediately drawn into the storyline. From the beginning, I was scared for Kina and Kenny, annoyed by Sully's selfishness, upset by Lawson's decisions, floored by Angel's discovery, and not surprised at all by Reggie's behavior.

I turned each page impatiently wanting to find out if Kina would be free, whether Sully would cheat, when Lawson would reveal the truth, and if Angel would forgive the woman who had stolen her husband. I must admit, I was so caught up, until I skipped to the last chapter of the book to see how it would end. It didn't ruin the story for me at all. I returned to my former place in the book and continued to read with great anticipation.

The story was gripping and undeniably profound. Flaws and All, reveals genuine friendships, unconditional love, and sincere forgiveness. One of my favorite lines comes from a conversation between Angel and Theresa [Reese] about un-forgiveness. Reese says, "...you can choose to be the prisoner with the life sentence, or the warden who sets her free." Actually, there were quite a few lines that stuck out as profound to me like when Kina was asked, "...what's scarier: finding out the truth or living a lie."

When the story began, Kina was bound by fear, Sully deceived by selfishness, Lawson tormented by a secret, and Angel engulfed by heartbreak and overwhelmed from un-forgiveness.
