The story is set in the late 1990's in a small Southern town and features Amina Jefferson, a young African American woman who recently celebrated two victories: college graduation and divorce. Amina struggles with living on a day to day basis because her abusive ex-husband enjoys wreaking havoc at every turn. With only a small circle of friends including the ladies at work and her older cousin Monica, she merely exists in her single life based on safe activities - reading, writing, and work until one day, with Monica in tow; she decides to venture out into the world. Taking one harmless risk at a casino puts into motion a series of events that transforms her simple secure world into a life changing ordeal. The memories of how she managed to turn her life around may haunt her forever.
