The enjoyable short stories in The Secret Lives of Church Ladies give voice to Southern black women’s experience of sexuality and religion amid a colourful cast of of family, friends, and lovers. An insightful and entertaining read!

The nine stories in this collection feature four generations of characters grappling with who they want to be in the world, caught as they are between the church’s double standards and their own needs and passions.

These engaging, character driven stories will appeal to readers of Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid and The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
