Telling the story of St. Petersburg family of Robinson, this title presents the saga of sisterhood, passion and test of loyalty. When three sisters who have grown up in a fatherless family are tested by their passion for the same man, a bond that has been forged over years looks set to break...Brenda, the brainy elder of the Robinson girls, longs for a father and tries to win her mother's approval by being good in every way. Fellow college student, Michael Dawson becomes her first reason to be bad, as she decides to win him - from her sisters - any way she can. Annette, the protected baby sister, keeps her eyes on heaven, reading the Bible and preaching the Gospel - until she develops an overwhelming crush on Michael, the tenant in their family's rental house. She had always dreamed of going to Africa. Now, she dreams of Michael - as family ties are unravelled, perhaps forever. Cora, the wild middle child and her mother's favourite, savours life by tasting everything in it, including men. A fire burns within her, igniting every life she touches - including Michael's. He is drawn to her, irresistibly. Someone is bound to get burned - but who?

The story of the Robinson family is told with true grit. We know the story of a dream being deferred (meaning Laura's the matriarch of the Robinson family) because of love and children (not that she acknowledged regretting having her children). She played the hand she was dealt (raised her girls in spite of the father's inability to commit/ settle down. She wanted more for her girls ...but as with her, life happened for them (and choices were made that she did not always agree with but in the end...home was just that...home....and the Robinson girls were welcomed and loved.
Eboni created a piece of work that is a masterpiece. I will talk about this book to whoever will listen. It has everything: lessons on life, death, grief, love and forgiveness. I'll end it by stating something that was said in the book: God has laid out a plan for us. But, it looks like a maze to us. All of us aren't going to make the best choices for our highest good every time but the r's always another chance. I'll add a part: there's always another chance to get it right!. Annette got it right by doing missionary work. Cora got it right by settling down and giving back. Brenda got it right by acknowledging that she tried to manufacture love. Laura got it right but releasing her anger. Michael got it right....Warren got it right by loving in the manner that they could. Nubia got it right by meeting people where they were and loving them for who they were not who she wanted them to be. 2 thumbs up...a must read.
