Sisters & Husbands

By Connie Briscoe (Trade Paperback, 2011)
It's fifteen years following Sisters & Lovers, and Beverly, now age 39, is engaged to a man her family and friends agree is a great catch. Everyone is happy that Beverly will finally settle down, especially since this is her third engagement in the last five years--having backed out about two weeks before the wedding date for one reason or another.

Julian, Beverly's fiance, is the epitome of a good Black man--gorgeous, loyal, trustworthy, successful and very much in love with Beverly. Nothing could be better in the couple's lives than being in love and planning their wedding. That is, until Beverly's oldest sister's marriage falls apart, dampening the mood for what should have been the happiest time in her life. Now Beverly is forced to wonder if marriage really works, as she begins to second guess her own nuptials. Will Beverly stick it out? Or will her fears cloud her judgment once again?
