A fresh, insightful voice in African-American fiction, national bestselling author Kimberla Lawson Roby has won raves from readers and critics alike. Now Roby is back with "Casting The First Stone" -- a novel which, like Waiting to Exhale and Scenes from Sistah, is rich, compelling, and filled with emotionally engaging characters. It's the powerful story of a woman torn between salvaging the marriage which has given her both happiness and heartbreak, and savoring her first sweet taste of independence.

Tanya Black has everything a woman could want: a fulfilling career, a beautiful daughter, an elegant home, and a handsome, charismatic husband who is pastor at a prominent Baptist church. And yet, Tanya can no longer deny that tho calm surface of her life hides a growing turbulence. Her husband Curtis, once a supportive partner and passionate lover, has grown remote, and Tanya has the uneasy feeling that her comfortable life is about to change forever.

When Tanya discovers disturbing truths about Curtis, she is plunged into a bittersweet journey of discovery. For while she learns painful new lessons about love, betrayal, and sensual temptation, she also discovers, within herself, the wisdom to celebrate the victories that are hers alone.
