Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse have been best friends for years. When one of the woman has a problem, the other two are there to support her. Whitney is a plus–sized woman who just can't turn down a box of Krispy Kremes or find a man who'll stick around. Taylor is in a long–term relationship with a boyfriend who won't commit to marriage. And Charisse––well, Charisse is married, with two adorable children, but somehow doesn't have what she wants or needs. Then suddenly Charisse spins out of control. Her doormat husband manages to stand up to her and even threatens to go public with some very shady practices that Charisse had hoped to keep hidden, especially from her interfering mother. Only a very risky scheme will save her, she decides. But this time, how far can friendship go? In a witty and rollicking and ultimately poignant story, Kimberla Lawson Roby is at her best, telling a tale of three women who know that sometimes exhaling isn't enough.
