In her second captivating novel, Patricia Jones addresses issues that hit at the heart of the African American community, while at the same time, renders them universally provocative.
Lila Giles has come a long way since she stepped out from under her stepmother's controlling thumb. Happily married to cardiac surgeon Jack Calloway and living in her beloved hometown of Baltimore, Lila splits her time between visiting with Jack's elderly patients, directing her online reading program for children and contemplating the possibility of motherhood. But all this comes to a screeching halt when, one typical Saturday afternoon, Lila is confronted with a situation that challenges the very core of her moral fiber. In one split second, the idyllic life Jack and Lila have built together is threatened, and suddenly Lila must reconcile the truth that there's a bit of evil in all of us with her love for her husband and her faith in her life's purpose.
