Overview

Delilah Monroe and her husband Rocky always dreamed of their three daughters making it big in show business as a musical trio. After Rocky's death, Delilah's determination is even stronger. However, her daughters—Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha—aren't so sure. Roxanne is a cruiseline entertainer, while Alisha writes jingles for an ad agency by day and secretly composes her own songs at night. Veronica, whose dancing is better than her singing, is the one with the biggest opportunity due to her husband Dexter's grand plans—plans that are at the expense of her sisters'.

Delilah wants to keep her daughters together, but they have minds of their own. Soon Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha embark on their own paths, only to find that the price of fame might be more than they're willing to give. An inspirational family drama, DELILAH'S DAUGHTERS showcases Angela Benson as one of the strongest voices in African-American women's fiction today.

Editorial Reviews

Austin Weekly News
“A great read.”
Booklist
“[Benson’s] themes will resound with many readers and her portrayal of a newly reformed, albeit occasionally backsliding, sinner is masterful.”
Kimberla Lawson Roby
“With characters you can’t help rooting for, Up Pops the Devil is a wonderful story about hope, faith, and redemption—the kind of story we can all learn valuable lessons from.”
Victoria Christopher Murray
“A wonderful twist on a story that’s as old as the ages—conflict and competition between siblings—with scandal and suspense added to the mix. An entertaining, enjoyable novel that deserves to be on every bestseller’s list.”
