But their lives quickly unravel as their fathers lucrative catering business collapses. He disappears and is presumed dead, and their mother suffers an apparent breakdown. The girls are wrenched from their mother, and as the novel opens they are living in foster care in a working-class neighborhood in the home of Mae, a politically connected card shark. Though Mae is filled with syrupy names like pudding and doll face for the foster girls, she is abusive to her own child, Ramona, a twenty-something stunning beauty.

As Ramona struggles with Maes abuse and her own hatred for the foster children, she also tries to keep at bay a powerful attraction she has for her boyfriends father.Diane McKinney-Whetstone richly evokes the early 1960s in west Philadelphia in this spicy story of loss and healing, redemption and love.
