Description

Anatural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed collection In Love
& Trouble, these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show
women oppressed but not defeated.These are hopeful stories about love,
lust, fame, and cultural thievery, the delight of new lovers, and the
rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.
