Ms. Jackson does it again. This young women has such an insight into human character. I'm sure we all know someone like the four women involved in the storyline. I can hardly wait for her next book!

About this book

Wiki

A blessing to one is not necessarily good fortune to another. Jackson's third novel (her previous wasLi'l Mama's Rules) deals with this irony on several fronts. The story takes place at Blessings, a beauty salon in Inglewood, California. Pat, the owner, named the salon Blessings because she wanted to create, and "hooking up hair was the ultimate blessing and one of the easiest ways to make women feel better about themselves." Pat and the three other women (Faye, Zuma, and Sandy) who work at the shop each have to deal with issues surrounding motherhood and parenting: Pat's infertility, Faye's single parenthood, Zuma's artificial insemination, and Sandy's neglectful motherhood. Each situation creates an intensity that bonds the women together, not only as coworkers but ultimately as friends. Jackson's style, humor, and compassion have grown with each novel. This work is sure to please her readers.Lillian Lewis
