A Taste of Reality By: Kimberla Lawson Roby
On the surface, Anise seems to have it all: a successful career, a solid marriage, and good friends. But when she applies for a promotion at work, she loses out to a white colleague who isn't nearly as qualified for the job. And after being married for four seemingly blissful years, she discovers that her husband is having an affair. To make matters worse, her best friend in the office is keeping dangerous secrets.
But Anise is no quitter. As brave as she is determined, she reaches deep inside her soul to find the strength and courage to overcome heartbreak and stay her course. Ultimately she will discover that everything worth having is worth fighting for -- in her career and, most importantly, in her heart.
