Julia A. Boyd and her Sister Circle settle in for a long and intimate chat about every woman's favorite topics-sex and love-in her latest book, Embracing the Fire. From the uninhibited conversation in "Having Some Fun Talking Trash" to a serious discussion in "I Am Not My Mother's Daughter", the sisters touch on everything from sexual freedom and experimentation to the dating and mating game, the pain of breaking up, and raising safe, responsible kids. Author and psycho-therapist Julia A. Boyd shares her personal stories as well-how her own approach to life and intimate relationships has changed through the years. Filled with the straight talk and sister-to-sister warmth and wittiness that distinguished Julia A. Boyd's bestselling book In the Company of My Sisters, Embracing the Fire speaks directly to the hearts and minds of black women everywhere.
