Identity, attitudes, and culture collide as a mother and daughter’s values and backgrounds are challenged by everyone around them in this moving, often humorous, and unforgettable novel from Laura Castoro.

It ain’t easy being biracial and a trust fund baby, but blue-eyed Jesse Morgan is determined to just be herself at an eastern college, where no one will know who or what she is—unless she chooses to tell them. What Jesse doesn’t yet realize is that “no past” doesn’t equal “no problems.”

High-powered executive Thea Morgan is marrying Rev. Xavier Thornton—the former athlete and successful black businessman-turned-pastor, a man she first fell in love with at sixteen. A fair-skinned black woman who cracked the glass ceiling in the Texas oil business, Thea assumes her identity difficulties are behind her. She hasn’t yet met Xavier’s new congregation in a down-on-its-luck Arkansas town—nor Mrs. Hattie Patterson, the matriarch of St. Hurricane Church who has fixed opinions about how a minister’s wife should behave. Will Thea lose her struggles to win over Xavier’s congregation, people who just don’t understand her big-city ways? It will take every bit of her humor, business acumen, and just plain hard-loving to deal with her crisis of faith and the sinking feeling that, just maybe, love can’t conquer all.

Like mother, like daughter, Thea and Jesse discover that sometimes to get what you need most you to have to put everything, even love, on the line.
