A sisterhood bound by promise and woven with love. Adoma, an idealist, inspires her closest friends -- her soul sisters -- to meet on an idyllic island off the coast of Africa for a ten-year reunion. She's longing to reconnect, especially since she's just turned her life inside out, leaving her former career overseas and her rich but controlling beau. Her friends have had their share of ups and downs over the years too. Broken hearts, broken promises. They used to tell each other everything, but now Adoma senses secrets being kept, maybe even lies being told. What's behind them? What happened to the trust she needs so badly? As the secrets unravel, a life-threatening disaster emerges. Storm clouds gather in their island paradise while the ties of old friendship are strained to the limit. No one - including Adoma, knows whether the sisterhood will survive ...or if their lives will ever be the same.
About the Author
In high school, M.L. dreamt of writing, but it would be over twenty years before she entertained the idea of writing as a career. In the meantime, she began working in Human Resources in Houston and D.C. before eventually moving overseas. There, she experienced many fulfilling moments as she traveled and lived around the world. Later, as M.L. delved into fiction, she made sisterhood and West African culture a recurring theme in her work. She crafts her inspirational literature from her home base in Austin, Texas. M.L.'s debut novel, "Tenth Year in the Sun," is a women's fiction story inspired by her experiences and the connections she made in her life at home and abroad. M.L. describes the novel as being 'at the intersection of Women's Fiction and West African culture'.
