Summary
After being blamed for her baby sister's death, Dianne Rucker swore she'd never come back to Dentonville, Texas. But her Aunt Gloria, who took her in after the accident, is getting remarried. Going back home means Dianne must face her own demons as well as a drug-addicted mother who is now falling even farther into schizophrenia. But Dianne isn't the only one struggling. Her two cousins, Yolanda and Regina must come to terms with their own issues after having grown up in this dysfunctional family of women. Yolanda's a control-freak who's on the verge of shutting down the best relationship she never had. And Regina has nearly outdone herself trying to lose weight despite the fact that her husband (and everyone else with eyes) thins she looks perfectly fine. Joyce Ann's mental state is no laughing matter. She needs help. But how do you help somebody who won't stay put long enough to see a program through? Nobody's got more skeletons than Gloria May, the woman who raised all of the girls. But the matriarch of the family (Aunt Toe) is determined to make sure her sister's offspring shake the generational shackles loose and turn back to a faith in God that will never disappoint. The women must look to their faith in God as they attempt to turn their lives around like Saul on the Biblical road to Damascus.--Back cover
Summary
"A family of Christian women battle issues of unwanted pregnancies, overeating, mental illness and traumatic childhoods, hoping that--like Saul's encounter with God on the road to Damascus--their lives will turn around."--Provided by the publisher
