Sometimes the things that we expect the least are the things that we should fear the most Ö
Racial tensions, unparallel social status, secret payoffs, perpetual lies and surprising revelations are at the forefront of this family saga that explores all aspects of the human spirit and evokes almost every known human emotion.
Allison Williams-Bradshaw, an African American teenager, becomes pregnant by Brian Chandler, the teenage son of one of the wealthiest Caucasian dynasties in the Southern Region. Immediately after discovering that she is pregnant, and totally unbeknownst to Brian, Allison is abruptly banished from the only life that she has known and is forced to raise her child in obscurity. Some twenty-two years later, Allisonís illegitimate child, Yasmine, meets the man of her dreams. These unlikely lovers overcome insurmountable odds and appear to be finally well on their way to a very promising future. Suddenly they are thrust into a whirlwind of circumstances and become the innocent victims of an inescapable past that unfolds in a riveting chain of events with a tragically shocking ending.
