Miss Pearly's Girls by ReShonda Tate Billingsley digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In this captivating family drama from award-winning, bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley, four estranged sisters must return to rural Arkansas when their mother is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Their mother wants them to repair their shattered relationships, but first they’ll have to face the lies and obstacles they’ve worked so hard to leave behind…
 
Raising four very different daughters on her own in rural Arkansas wasn't easy for Miss Pearly Bell. And she's always regretted that the sisters went their separate ways for good—and never wanted to see each other again. But when Pearly is stricken with a terminal illness, she summons them all home—determined to somehow help them get right with each other and forgive. . . But that means dealing with past secrets and lies first. 
 
As the oldest sister, pastor's wife Maxine took her responsibility way too seriously—and never fails to judge everyone else. But a secret she can no longer keep will explode everything she stands for. Youngest sister Leslie is all about making a very different life with her new love—but she didn't expect a shattering past truth to be suddenly revealed and uproot everything she ever thought she knew. Elegant PR professional Stella and her earthy twin, Star, don’t see eye-to-eye on anything—and now a long-ago deception could wipe out their last chance at a relationship.
 
Soon each sister must confront the illusions they've taken refuge in for so long and deal with each other woman-to-woman. But can building an all-too-fragile trust repair the damage done—and help them come together when they are needed most?

Anxious Face with sweat“This was like Tyler Perry dramatic mixed with real life situations. It was extremely triggering by the SA scene being very graphic. Whereas, nothing else was as descriptive in the entire book. Disappointed in this book.. it had a good lesson but it’s just another story we’ve heard before.”

Slightly Smiling Face“This book was nothing short of amazing! I was skeptical in the beginning because I didn’t go in with any expectations! But let me telll you! Miss Pearly Girls definitely needed to listen to miss pearly! The secrets that unfolded, the drama and chaos. Baby listen that secret was not what I had in mind one bit! I loved this storyline and it was very addicting lol. If you’re looking for why here it is!”
