Successful magazine exec Lance Kingston craves a committed romantic relationship and when Tia, a driven lawyer on the cusp of a major promotion, finds herself attracted to Lance, the two begin an exclusive relationship. Seemingly destined for an ideal life together, their relationship takes a turn when Tia begins acting erratically shortly after the wedding, and Lance urges her to seek medical attention. Lance finds himself deeply conflicted - and wondering if he can ever help his wife if she refuses to help herself.

display_description Her novel Say Amen, Again won the NAACP Image Award, proving that ReShonda Tate Billingsley's storytelling "scores a direct hit" (Publishers Weekly), delighting and inspiring with powerful, soul-searching situations and unforgettable characters.
How far will you go to save someone you love and trust when they've kept a dangerous secret for years? That's the question facing Lance Kingston, a successful Houston magazine executive whose recent marriage to beautiful, high-powered attorney Tia Jiles seemed to promise a bright future for both of them. But under the surface, a fierce and frightening storm was brewing. That's because Tia never revealed to Lance what she and her family have known since Tia was seventeen—she has an illness that takes over her mind, transforming her into a raging, violent woman hell-bent on destruction. Bipolar disorder. Schizophrenia. Or crazy, as Lance's grandmother continually reminds him. "Crazy leaves clues," she told him point-blank, and perhaps Lance should have listened. Tia's mother tries to pray the problem away . . . and Tia's doctors can't help her if she won't do what they advise. Now there's more than their marriage and Tia's survival at stake: Tia is pregnant, and Lance will stop at nothing to keep his troubled wife and unborn daughter safe. But at what price?
