About this ebook

Following a major loss, five sisters pledge to keep it real but one is hiding a big secret in the first of this series from the author of A Sister’s Power.
 
Savvy and decisive, Burgundy Reeves feels blessed with a good husband and a successful career. She is the sister everyone envies. Since her beloved mother's death, she's given troubled youngest sister, Elyse, a stable home when she needs it most. And she's taken it on herself to keep her contentious siblings together. Under her guidance, they all meet bi-monthly on “Sister Day,” a time when they get together to bond, to receive a challenging “assignment”, and to cope with a range of things—including their many differences . . .
 
 Among the sisters’ most challenging assignments: tell the truth. But truthfulness leads to an unveiling of secrets that may destroy lives. Burgundy is struggling to show Coco the real deal about her unreliable baby daddy. If she and level-headed Drucilla can also convince hard-headed eldest sister Alita to give Coco more love than tough talk, that might heal a longtime rift. But it’s teenage Elyse’s truth that will shatter Burgundy’s perfect world beyond repair. And putting the pieces back together could make the sisters stronger together than ever—or pull them apart for good.

Rax has a way of reaching out in a manner that bridges the abyss between author and reader, where she offers a gentle embrace. This literary gift, a momentary bonding of the souls, left me overwrought, suddenly understanding the deadly power of family secrets and the undying strength of genuine sisterhood. Translating into a mesmerizing, page-turning, stay-up-all-night read, A Sister’s Secret crossed the chasm of a mirage of topics. At times the story is light and funny. Other times, it is like an intense expressionist painting depicting the pain and emotional distress of the women and their hidden secrets. In crafting such vivid tale, Rax soars above the genre for which she is best known. That she can portray five black women in a realistic story, while not yielding to sensationalism and exaggeration, driven equally by strong characters and masterfully crafted plots is nothing short of genius. As a whole, this strongly executed work serves as a powerful reminder of what true sisterhood means and the unyielding importance of the female connection. In probing the lives and circumstances of Alita, Burgundy, Coco, Drucilla, and Elyse, Rax has produced a story that will resonate with a wide range of women, regardless of race or marital status.
