Vera Lomax seems like the perfect wife to Kenneth, a pillar of San Francisco’s African American community who owns a chain of successful electronics stores. But beneath Vera’s well-maintained façade lies a cold heart. Years ago, when she found out that Kenneth was having an affair with his secretary, she paid her off to leave while still pregnant. Years later, Kenneth finds out about his daughter and decides to make things right for teenage Sarah, who grew up in poverty. Vera struggles to bring Sarah under her influence, but independent Sarah refuses to fall into line, and their battle of wills threatens to tear the Lomax family apart for good. Just when readers think that Vera’s villainy has reached new lows, she launches another jaw-dropping scheme, not caring whom she hurts in the process. Expect epic fights worthy of a 1980s prime-time soap opera along with torrid sex scenes in this raw, sudsy urban novel from Monroe (Mama Ruby, 2011), a master of the genre. Readers who enjoy watching characters’ fortunes rise and fall will relish this tumultuous family. --Nanette Donohue
Praise for the novels of Mary Monroe
"Once again, Monroe displays her gift as a marvel with this sensational novel." --RT Book Reviews on Lost Daughters
"Reminiscent of Zora Neale Hurston, but the story has a bizarre, violent edge a la Stephen King. . .a candid portrayal of the cold-blooded yet fascinating Mama Ruby." --Publishers Weekly on The Upper Room
"Monroe's style, like her characters, is no-holds-barred earthy. . .. Monroe's characters deal with their situations with a weary worldliness and fatalism that reveal their vulnerability as well as their flaws." --Booklist on Mama Ruby --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
