It takes a village to make a book. I would like to thank my village:
My agent, Barbara Markowitz, for being my partner, fan, and friend; my writers' group, for telling it like it is; Nancy the Pool Girl Farrelly, who critiques with honesty, humor, and respect for the Sisterhood; Leslie Guccione, for sharing poignant stories of her beloved mother, Winnie, who inspired the character of Queenie in this novel; Willy and Grady, for loving me and eating leftovers; and, of course, the “village” at Farrar, Straus and Giroux: my brilliant editors, Frances Foster and Janine O'Malley; my charming (and never irritating) copy editor, Elaine Chubb; my talented designer, Barbara Grzeslo, and my productive production manager, Daniel Myers; and, lastly, thank you to the good Baptists of the South, whose kindness and unwavering faith inspired my life, as well as this story.
