Synopsis

"If you can't reach a girlfriend to pour out your heart read Souls of My Sisters... Souls is just the thing when you need an extra boost." --Heart and Soul Magazine

Sisters Share Their Experience. . .And Their Strength

In this revised edition, black women from all walks of life candidly reveal how they overcame challenges just like the ones you're facing now. From Patti Labelle, Terrie M. Williams, LisaRaye McCoy, and Mary J. Blige to single moms and spiritual leaders, these diverse females have bonded together in print, for the first time, to discuss the issues that have touched their lives. You'll find a few new stories and learn what has happened to some of these Soul Sisters in this revised edition.

Their powerful, provocative, and ultimately uplifting stories relate with raw honesty the experiences only their sisters can truly understand, from abortion, AIDS and date rape to love, sex, racism, and money. Your sisters have been in your shoes. With their help, and your own inner strength of faith, you'll soon be taking the first precious steps toward healing from within--and liberating the magnificent woman you always dreamed of becoming.

"Provides an opportunity for us to stop apologizing for what we have no control over and control what we can." --Debra Fraser-Howze, President/CEO of the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS
