A People Magazine Pick.

The MacDowell Fellowship and New York Times bestselling author, Denene Millner makes her solo fiction debut with this intimate yet sweeping novel that encompasses the poetic brilliance and power of Homegoing and The Mothers--that chronicles the journey of three generations of women through motherhood, sisterhood, love, hope, dreams, and the secrets they dare to keep...even from themselves.

Grace: raised by her beloved grandmother in tension-filled, post-segregation Virginia, Grace is barely a teenager when she loses her grandmother. Shellshocked, she is shipped up North to live with her formidably ambitious Aunt Hattie―a woman who firmly left behind her Southern roots in pursuit of upward mobility. Feeling like a fish out of water in the high society world filled with fancy teas and coveted debutante balls, Grace's only place of comfort is with the smart, handsome son of one of the society's grand dames.

Delores: beautiful, intelligent and fierce, Delores a.k.a. Lolo has never had it easy. Once she makes it north, she puts aside her dream of being a model to do what she has to do to survive as a woman with little money and no mooring: get married and have a family of her own. When secrets start to spill out and she and her family slowly begin to unravel, Lolo is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her dream intact and those she loves together.

Rae: when Lolo's headstrong daughter, Rae discovers that she is adopted, it's just one secret among others that her family is keeping. When Rae finds out that she's about to become a mother herself, she knows that there is an important reckoning that must be faced about herself and her two mothers.

Potent, poetic, and powerful, Denene Millner's beautifully wrought novel explores the unshakeable bond of three women and what it truly means to be family.
