Raedella Rollins left the dusty town of Sweet Poke, Arkansas, on a Texas-bound bus with four mis-matched suitcases, a newsroom job offer, and a promise to herself: never look back. Less than a decade later she's a top-rated talk show host, a celebrity news anchor, and fiancee to Houston's star councilman.
But now that she's reached the top, her ragtag family comes knocking. Mama Tee, the grandmother who raised her, calls with unwelcome family updates; and Shondella, her jealous older sister, guilts her into sending money. To Rae, nothing could be worse than an unexpected reunion with her over-the-top relatives. But when her picture-perfect life falls apart, can Rae forgive the past and open her heart to the healing that only faith and family can provide?
