Sammie Davis was accustomed to chaos in her life. For Sammie, it had always been that way and it drew me to her like a bee to honey..."
Marie Morgan, a single mother of two, is currently separated from her husband. One day on the way to work Marie meets Sammie in an Atlanta subway station. With her short skirts, high heels, and occasional birdcage hairdo, Sammie is everything Marie is not -- fearless, brazen, flamboyant, and completely unselfconscious. A woman who flaunts her wild unconventionality, Sammie exudes self-confidence and dares to laugh at life. Soon Marie is feeling empowered by her new friend; as Marie's "freeway of choice," Sammie is always on hand whenever Marie feels the urge to be a little wild. Yet beneath her facade of bravado and sexual abandon, Sammie conceals her own deep pain and a dark history that gradually comes to light.
A powerful novel about the doubts, insecurities, and low self-esteem that can sabotage our most important relationships, All That Drama offers a fresh, witty, and moving look at women's issues, and the sisterhood that can also sustain us through life's toughest times.
