After she gives up a chance to attend Julliard to care for her sick mother, Olivia Dawson learns that her father is alive and well--and very wealthy--and decides to confront the man who left her and her mother in his wake. From the national Essence bestselling author comes an engaging tale about a family secret that sends one young woman scrambling to uncover the truth about her past. Award-winning author ReShonda Tate Billingsley, whose bestselling fiction "tackles some of life's toughest situations" ( The Florida Times-Union ), unravels the secrets in a mother's past that turn her daughter's life upside downby revealing the family she never knew existed.
