The toast of Europe, Josephine Evans had spent thirty years abroad establishing her reputation as one of the finest actresses of her generation. In Amsterdam, she redefined who and what an African American diva could be, and her legions of loyal fans loved her for it. But when a war she didn’t even understand suddenly makes her the target of angry anti-American protests, Josephine is forced to return to America to see if she can find a new definition of home. Camping out with her granddaughter in Atlanta’s West End, Josephine tries to reclaim her old life even as she scrambles to shape her new one. An unexpected reunion with an old friend, Abbie Allen Browning, soon offers her a chance to set things right. Rallying with Abbie against an unscrupulous land developer who threatens to tear the community apart, Josephine finds herself playing the most important role of her life, as she shows her neighbors what courage really is and learns the real meaning of coming home.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Sparkling…No doubt, Seen It All’s leading lady, actress Josephine Evans, will soon [become] a book-club fave.”

    Essence

  • “The uplifting end of the story is never in doubt, but Cleage provides enough plot turns and setbacks to make things interesting. Best of all, Josephine’s voice—independent, smart, wise, and funny—never flags. She’s a winning character.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Robin Miles is one of the best narrators in the business…Miles portrays Josephine’s militant patriotism, but behind all the bravado there’s a well of sorrow. Listeners will thoroughly enjoy this offbeat plot and Miles’s totally convincing narration.”

    AudioFile

  • “Cleage revives some beloved characters as she celebrates personal evolution and the joy of true homecoming. Fans of this bestselling author will love this latest work.”
