About the Book

Grace Peterson’s life has been about helping others resolve conflicts and emotional issues that keep recurring in their lives. She began this quest at a very young age, starting with her family, so becoming a therapist was just inevitable. Grace and her four friends hold one another together through life’s ups and downs, all while learning, supporting one another, encouraging, and creating an unshakable bond and friendship through their weekly group sessions. Summer Hawthorne, an attorney at a prestigious law firm in New York City, is an extremely talented, single, fun-loving friend who always strives to get what she wants at any price. Summer is involved with a man she can’t have and has developed a problem that she is going to have to come to grips with before it destroys her life. Greta Williams, the owner of the Williams Classic Dance Studio, is an entrepreneur and married to a wonderful man who shares her love of dance. She’s a survivor and a fighter and has the ability to take life head on regardless of how many obstacles she constantly faces. Dedicated to her marriage and a top fashion executive, Simone Grier has a forgiving spirit, is loyal, and is trusting. Her husband comes first, and loving him is like the air she breathes. Lately, she feels like her marriage is slipping away, and she doesn’t know what to do to save it. He is changing right before her eyes, but leaving him is not an option. Rainey Waters, the feisty one of the group, is streetwise and smart and speaks her mind in spite of what others may think. Rainey’s life revolves around her two children, family, and their father. She longs to live the fairy-tale life with the only man she has ever loved.


About the Author

Kimberly Humphries-Washington began writing at the early age of twelve. Using a pencil and a spiral notebook, characters came to life on those pages until the sides of her fingers were indented and cramped from writing. Her childhood dream has always been to write a novel. Kimberly studied at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. While there, she wrote articles for the university magazine. After graduating from college, she worked as a public relations coordinator for Ziff Davis Publishing in New York City and a publications specialist for DeKalb College in Atlanta, Georgia. She eventually switched careers and decided to pursue another love of hers—fashion. She landed a job at Liz Claiborne Inc. in New York City as a merchandiser. But for the Grace, is her first novel but certainly not her last. She currently lives in Matawan, New Jersey, with her husband.
