MEET THE CAST OF TRUST: The characters were not only relatable, but felt like people I knew from my own community. Ruth’s life-long friendship with Irene was moving and honest, leaving me full of joy having experienced this story wrapped in Black womanhood. I could recognize it as sisterhood on every page, with all the women, as they worked together to build the lives they wanted. All of the relationships felt real, and included a depth because each woman was not a plot point but a multifaceted character. ~Black&Bookish.com Review
