Regina, Antoinette and Victoria find themselves leaning on each other as they struggle with family and relationship issues. Regina must decide between reconciling with her ex-husband, who finally realizes what letting her go means to him, and the new man in her life.

Antoinette's marriage is in trouble after her husband discovers her affair. The very dark-complected Victoria, meanwhile, married to white Phillip and pregnant with their first child, struggles with low self-esteem. They have a journey ahead that will teach them much about themselves and each other.

Hill does a fine job creating fascinating women and intertwining three stories into one, and the male characters offset the women nicely. But each would have benefited from more detailed attention, and frequent point-of-view changes become confusing. (Aug., 288 pp., $6.99)
