An inspirational story about the allure of fame and the faith that binds a family forever . . .

Delilah Monroe has done everything in her power to keep her three daughters strong since the death of her husband. And a big part of that connection is their singing group, Delilah's Daughters. Veronica, Roxanne, and Alisha each have their own unique sense of self, but they all share the dream of Delilah's Daughters hitting the Billboard charts.

Now, just as they enter the final round of a national talent show, a record producer approaches Veronica with the promise of fame . . . if she goes solo. Then the man Delilah has always leaned on wants more from her than just friendship, and someone from her past comes calling with a shocking secret. Will Delilah be able to hold her family together?

display_description "Delilah Monroe and her husband Rocky always dreamed of their three daughters making it big in show business as a musical trio. After Rocky's death, Delilah's determination is even stronger. However, her daughters--Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha--aren't so sure. Roxanne is a cruiseline entertainer, while Alisha writes jingles for an ad agency by day and secretly composes her own songs at night. Veronica, whose dancing is better than her singing, is the one with the biggest opportunity due to her husband Dexter's grand plans--plans that are at the expense of her sisters'. Delilah wants to keep her daughters together, but they have minds of their own. Soon Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha embark on their own paths, only to find that the price of fame might be more than they're willing to give. An inspirational family drama, DELILAH'S DAUGHTERS showcases Angela Benson as one of the strongest voices in African-American women's fiction today"--
