The Pearls kept silent; if not for their sake, for the sake of the family. However, there was one Pearl different from the rest. She began to talk more, ask questions. She began looking at other relationships—how they worked outside the confines, guidance, and support like the Elders. She found out secrets. She exposed behaviors by befriending women outside of the family. She changed; some say she turned her back. There was no doubt that the lives of the Pearls would never be the same. Latrika can't go on living the life she had led for so many years. She can't keep to herself anymore. She can't hold back. She needs help. She's getting a divorce from a man that the Elders had approved of, even if he did cheat on her with multiple women. Her friend Blair crosses the line and schedules Latrika an appointment with a therapist. Begrudgingly, Latrika goes to the appointment, but it's not like what she thought it was going to be. Her mind is opened, and memories that she struggled to forget surge to the surface. Family secrets, betrayals of her heart, and life-changing mistakes Latrika made in her adolescence swirl around her mind. Latrika is not so sure she's ready or willing to deal with everything, and she looks to alcohol to numb her pain. Will Latrika choose to deal with the pain, or will she order another Appletini? Can she survive without the aid and approval of the Elders? Will she be stripped of her title of a Pearl?
