The last thing Eloise Bingham wanted was to leave the comforts of her South Carolina home and family. But at the end of World War II, the young wife follows her formidable husband, Isaac, to Philadelphia – only to experience Isaac’s sinister and violent temper. Eloise harbors fear and resentment, but carries an unwavering faith that helps her to mother her children. Eloise’s children – and their children and grandchildren – will face their own trials over the next sixty years: Mattie, who has lived in her mother Eloise’s shadow, finds it takes a life-changing tragedy to help her break free; Lydia, Mattie’s strong-willed daughter, summons the resolve to rise above the family’s cycle of abuse; and Treasure tries the patience of her mother, Lydia, as she has the chance to be the first in the family to escape the destructive patterns of abuse that have haunted her family for so long.

As the women discover in this poignant novel, it will take unconditional love, old-fashioned family values, faith, and fearless determination – already embedded in each woman’s DNA – to triumph over a life plagued with unspeakable pain.
