Meet the Barnett sisters: Faithful, good natured Beverly; headstrong, ambitious Janet; bookish, droll Francine; silly but sweet Trudy and bold, reckless Maxine. They live under the strict rule of their religious, Jamaican father in the small town of Hamsford where they’re content with their sheltered life. But that comfortable life is shattered when Janet tries to leave and the wealthy Jeffrey Farmer returns to town with his foreign friend, Frederick Durand. Soon the Barnett’s world is turned upside down and the sisters find themselves embroiled in scandal, devastated by betrayal and tempted by a forbidden love that threatens to rip them apart. But they fight to stay together and learn the power of tradition, the depth of family, the healing strength of forgiveness and the destiny of love.
