Carla Celine “Cee Cee” Johnson has been living a life of her own making. Success hasn’t come to her. She’s made it with her own sweat—and one big lie. But every lie has an end.
Cee Cee has avoided Pettigrew, her hometown, for decades. It’s represented nothing but poverty and hate. But after near-fatal brushes with fate, the celebrated TV reporter is forced to face her pride and deception.
Can she forgive her father, the man who sought for many years to destroy her dreams? Her destiny is in the hands of a handsome white playwright and his friend, Isaac Hunt.
