Description

Waiting to Exhale meets Church Folk as five female attorneys do brunch each week to trade tales about their love lives, law firms, and the Lord! Meet Capri, an attorney at a top Houston firm. She seems to have it all together all the time until a seductive client topples her self-control. Then there's Jermane, a devout Catholic who met her husband in law school and has never been with another man. But now her workaholic marriage is threatened by temptation. Angel, on the other hand, sees men merely as a means to sex. Her scorn for love of all kinds--godly or otherwise--is challenged by a serious health scare. Meanwhile, Jewel bases her dating choices on the size of a man's bank account until she meets a new flame who causes her to reconsider her requirements. Finally, there's Lexi, the link between the ladies, who provides sage advice while praying for Mr. Right. But what happens when depression hits hard? Through conversation and consolation, these dynamic characters provide one another with divine inspiration--encouraging readers to root for them along the way.
