Even though she knew Edgar's death was imminent, the loss of her beloved husband is a deep and painful blow for Roberta. Gathering around her are her younger neighbors, Trudy Marino and Shannelle Pacheco, and her granddaughter, Jade. Old friends Trudy and Jade are both in the midst of painful breakups
with their husbands, while aspiring
author Shannelle must fight internal
and external obstacles to keep her dream alive. Unexpectedly, both Trudy and Jade are offered new passion in their lives;
will they have the courage to take it?

The intersection of four very different women's lives makes THE GODDESSES OF KITCHEN AVENUE a powerful and richly emotional read. Samuel's work continues to ripen and provide insight into the psyches of fascinating characters, whose lives are both entertaining and stimulating. Gifted is a word that sums up her work. (Feb., 304 pp., $23.95)
