    What Mother Never Told Me

    My Synopsis:

    What Mother Never Told Me (Sequel to Rhythms) by Donna Hill

    Parris McKay's life is rocked to the core when her grandmother reveals a secret that has been a part of their family for over two generations. Parris must find the mother she never knew and figure out to put the pieces of her life back together.

    Along the way in her search for truth, Parris finds a group of friends who help her to understand the complex relationship between every woman and her mother. Parris learns about prejudice, forgiveness and making hard choices. Will Parris find her mother? Can she somehow forgive her for the past? How will all this affect her relationship with Nick?

    My Thoughts:

    I was somewhat skeptical when I first started reading this book. It started out a little slow and I wasn't sure I was going to like it. Once Parris began her search for her mother, I started to get really interested in the characters and started to connect with the story. I liked this book very much.

    Donna Hill does a wonderful job of letting her readers see into the heart of her characters. Parris is a character that seems to leap off the page. A southern girl who has always believed she understood her life and her place in the world, until a secret threatens to destroy everything she has come to believe about herself. Not too many people would be able to withstand the rejection Parris finds and still have a good outlook on life.

    Nick is a complex character that shows a lot of resilience, courage and strength. He is there for Parris no matter what the situation is. The chemistry they have together seems very loving and very genuine. A nice refreshing relationship.

    Leslie, Marie and Celeste are great supporting characters each with a tumultuous relationship with their own mother's. Parris is able to learn so much from them.
