A raw, candid, and thought-provoking debut novel explores the devastating lingering effects of childhood turmoil on four thirtysomething friends
At first glance, Britton Landers, Indera Fleet, Damascus Miles, and Chyna Littles appear to be living their dreams. However, only Britton, a psychologist, knows the secrets lurking beneath each shiny facade. After he abandons his past for a seemingly carefree life in the Dominican Republic, he realizes that some memories will haunt you forever. Indera runs a successful beauty salon, but when it comes to men, she believes they're only good for one thing: sex. Damascus is a stripper with a deceptively healthy appetite for women...especially when it puts more money in his G-string, and Chyna is a good girl trapped in a marriage that is starting to unravel.
The demons that have haunted these friends since childhood are rising up, but it's the painful truth that could destroy them...
