Three best friends whose lives are intricately tied together through a Sister to Sister group in their church have been through some real trials in their lives. A cheating, wife-beating husband, recent divorce, tempting potential lovers, an 11 year old son with serious anger issues, a possible threat to one’s marriage, being stranded on an island in a storm with the choir director….these are just a few of the issues that Pam, Taylor, and Yvonne have to deal with. When a lovely girl, Eva, shows up at their church meeting needing food, Yvonne is more than happy to assist her and reach out with kindness. But can Eva’s past derail all that Yvonne has hoped for? Can Taylor forgive her baby’s daddy? Can Pam stay strong in the face of temptation?
This book surprised me with its frankness in dealing with serious problems in relationships. It was a bit confusing at first because each chapter is told from a different woman’s point of view and you don’t really know the connection between the ladies early on. It mixes street-wise folk with shouting-hallelujah folk and is heavy on pushing that Jesus will help you through it all. All in all, it was a good read that kept you guessing.
