Alice, Meredith and Mossy find out all too soon that life in the fast lanes ain't easy, especially when you're a young, black woman from the south.
If you looked up "sassy broad" in the dictionary, you'd find a picture of Alice Jones flashing a toothy smile at you. Being a woman of the night had made her hard to the core. However, despite her occupation, she considered herself a lady, determined to live life by her own rules, even if it meant breaking everyone else's rules in the process.
Although they were sisters, Meredith and Alice were complete opposites. When she was forced to leave the south, Meredith moved in with Alice. With no money and no job, she was forced into the "family" business. It didn't take her long to realize that if she didn't find a safer way to make a living, she wasn't going to make it.
Some secrets are meant to be kept. But Mossy found that keeping a secret was a heavy burden. And even the strongest person had her breaking point. Running from a secret that refused to be left behind drove Mossy right into Meredith's life and right into another mess.
