Description
Twenty-three dollars and eleven cents-that's all that thirty-five-year-old Chloe Davis Michaels has to her name after she is driven from her home and career as a jet-setting Hollywood publicist, desperate to protect her unborn child from her crazed newlywed husband. She thought she had it all. Now Chloe seeks refuge in her Midwestern hometown to "get prayed up" by the women in her family. Chloe's impromptu homecoming takes us into the world of eight African-American women who make up the Davis clan-three mothers and five daughters, including Chloe, who soon discovers that the secrets she's been keeping about her own life don't compare to the secrets the other women in her family have been hiding. As the bonds of family are tested, the women call upon their strong faith and spiritual teachings of deceased family matriarchs, MaMaw and Muh, in order to weather the storm. With rippling boldness and crackling prose, Wildflowers is a beautifully written novel that explores the richness and complexity of the love between mothers and daughters. From the Trade Paperback edition.
