What must-read novel is next on my bedside table? It just so happens to be this week's Girlfriends Cyber Circuit's touring book, a novel I've been dying to read since I first heard about it from the author herself:
Still reeling from divorce and feeling estranged from her teenage son, Trish Taylor is in the midst of salvaging the remnants of her life when she uncovers a shocking secret: her sister is alive.
“In Children of the Waters, Carleen Brice deftly explores issues of family, identity, and race with a wonderful abundance of humor, forgiveness, and grace. This moving story of two sisters separated by prejudice will open minds and touch hearts." —Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Sisters
Oooh, I cannot wait to read this! Now it's waiting for me this rainy weekend.
