Catherine Sanderson seems to have it all: a fulfilling career helping immigrant women find jobs, a lovely home, and a beautiful, intelligent daughter on her way to Smith College. What Catherine doesnâ€™t have: a father for her childâ€“ and sheâ€™s spent many years dodging her daughterâ€™s questions about it. Now Phoebe is old enough to start poking around on her own. It doesnâ€™t help matters that the mystery man, B.J. Johnsonâ€“the only man Catherine has ever lovedâ€“doesnâ€™t even know about Phoebe. Heâ€™s been living in Africa.
Now B.J., a renowned newspaper correspondent, is back in town and needs Catherineâ€™s help cracking a story about a female slavery ring operating right on the streets of Atlanta. Catherine is eager to help B.J., despite her heartâ€™s uncertainty over meeting him again after so long, and confessing the truth to himâ€“and their daughter.
Meanwhile, Catherineâ€™s hands are more than full since sheâ€™s taken on a new client. Atlantaâ€™s legendary Miss Mandevilleâ€“a housekeeper turned tycoonâ€“is eager to have Catherine staff her housekeeping business. But why are the steely Miss Mandeville and her all-too-slick sidekick Sam so interested in Catherineâ€™s connection to B.J.? What transpires is an explosive story that takes her worldâ€“not to mention the entire city of Atlantaâ€“by storm.
From the New York Times bestselling author of What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day . . . comes another fast-paced and emotionally resonant novel, by turns warm and funny, serious and raw. Pearl Cleageâ€™s ability to create a gripping story centered on strong, spirited black women and the important issues they face remains unrivaled.
