After the death of her son and her husband, Suga Mayes thought her life was over. Just by looking at the Haitian beauty, one could never tell the pain and sadness that she felt. However, one would be able to smell the Jack Daniels on her breath, the mask to all her problems. As time begins to go by, Suga learns that everything she thought was real turns out to be fake, everything she thought to be true is false, and everything she thought she lost...never died.
Its been a year since the death of her husband and son and Talonda "Suga" Mayes has yet to move on. Her life has become repetitive and routine. Wake with a hangover, shower, open her restaurant, paint, close, and drink again. Yet after a strange meeting with one of her husband's "old friend", her life begins to change dramatically. Read as Suga is broken to a point that even the woman who openly denounce God can do nothing but call on Him for help. Its one surprise and obstacle after another. Yet in the middle of her darkness God provides her enough light to see whats really be going on around her. And the the things she thought she lost was really right in front of her.
