In a remarkable debut novel that sizzles with sensuality, crackles with life affirming energy and moves the reader to laughter and tears,author Pearl Cleage creates a world rich in character, human drama and deep compassionate understanding.
After a decade of luxury living in Atalanta, Ava Johnson has returned to tiny Idlewild, Michigan–her fabulous career and power plans smashed to bits on one dark truth: Ava has tested positive for HIV. But rather than a sorrowful end, her homecoming is a new beginning. Because , in ten-plus years since she left, all the problems of the big city have invaded the sleepy community of her childhood. Because dear friends and family sorely need her help in the face of impending trouble and tragedy, Ava cannot turn her back on them. And because more importantly, Ava Johnson is inexplicably and undeniably falling in love.
