From Essence bestselling author Kayla Perrin comes the
compelling story of three generations of African-American
women---of their deepest secrets and most cherished lies.
The Grayson family is a pillar of the African-American
community in New Orleans. But Sylvia Grayson, the
matriarch, has deep secrets that she conceals beneath a
veneer of propriety. She keeps a tight rein on her
daughter, Olivia, and has the perfect life mapped out for
her: go to college, join the Delta sorority, and marry the
proper boy. After the town's "bad girl" is found murdered
one summer day in 1975, Sylvia pulls Olivia even closer.
But when Olivia's one last attempt at rebellion is
subverted by her mother, Sylvia's relentlessly tight hold
shatters the ties between them.
Years later, Olivia's own daughter, Rachelle, is trying to
make her way in the world. Olivia does not want to make the
same mistakes as her mother, nor does she want her daughter
to repeat the errors Olivia made out of rebellion.
Meanwhile, a killer is watching from the shadows,
determined to bring the secrets of the past to light.
The Delta Sisters is a gripping, intimate portrait of what
happens when these passionate women have to band together
at last in the face of danger.
