Black Fiction. The novel introduces us to Lucy Merriweather and ADel Kelly, both dealing with mid-life issues. Lucy is thirty-five and single and in great shape thanks to her career as a fitness manager for a string of Texas health clubs. Adel is vice president for human resources at American Oil, pulling a six figure salary and twenty-thousand-dolla-a-year bonuses. Unfortunately, neither is happy.

Lucy struggles with emotional and spiritual dreams. Her boyfriend, Spencer--a basic kind of guy who loves his mama, sports, fried chicken, and Lucy, in that order--doesn't seem to measure up. She she decides to get out of her rut with a sexy soul psychic named Kuba. Kuba seems to know what women want, or does he?

Adel struggles with a husband, Thad, who refuses to grow up, and a job that is less than satisfying despite the financial gains. She is eventually forced to examine her faith as she searched for a life that brings her closer to happiness and fulfillment.

Filled with the humor, passion, and pathos of modern black relationships.
