"Waiting to Exhale" meets "Church Folk" as five female attorneys do brunch each week to trade tales about their love lives, law firms, and the Lord
Meet Capri, an attorney at a top Houston firm. She seems to have it all together all the time until a seductive client topples her self-control. Then there's Jermane, a devout Catholic who met her husband in law school and has never been with another man. But now her workaholic marriage is threatened by temptation.
Angel, on the other hand, sees men merely as a means to sex. Her scorn for love of all kinds--godly or otherwise--is challenged by a serious health scare. Meanwhile, Jewel bases her dating choices on the size of a man's bank account until she meets a new flame who causes her to reconsider her requirements.
Finally, there's Lexi, the link between the ladies, who provides sage advice while praying for Mr. Right. But what happens when depression hits hard?
Through conversation and consolation, these dynamic characters provide one another with divine inspiration--encouraging readers to root for them along the way.
“The only thing better than selecting Sunday Brunch from the literary menu is the bittersweet dining experience with the divas that makes the pages come alive. You’ll want to call your friends and make reservations once you sink your teeth into this one.”
—Parry “EbonySatin” Brown, author of Sittin’ in the Front Pew
“Norma has created a recipe for inspiration, wit, friendship, and spiritual growth. Sunday Brunch portrays and examines ‘real life issues’ through vivid and relatable characters.”
—Victoria Christopher Murray, author of Joy
