About this Author
This is the story of a little girl who grows up and joins the Convent and becomes a Nun. Not unusual, but this little girl was black, and at the time that was unusual. Some of the things she talks about while in the Convent are really funny. Of course, if you died there they gave you a free funeral...wow!
Years later when she leaves the convent and becomes a Psychologist, she is confronted with the horror of loosing a young woman. This girl she has known since she was a youngster, and then had seen her as an adult and patient. When Kathy finds out that Chanelle has died from a drug over dose....she does not believe she took her own life.
Now Sandra is begins playing detective in a dangerous world. She goes to Atlanta and enters her Sister Tina's world. We sure do meet some interesting characters. The Sister's act like Sisters do, we love each other, but we are fair game. Her sister [not the Convent type] are there for her, loved the extended family. As for her Convent Sister...some parts are hysterical.
Get lost in a really good mystery, and some seedy sides of life, and some definitely different ways of living. You have to read to the end to find the "Who Done It"!
