Girls never know they say ’till they women and at times not even then. Well, I’se a woman now! And I’m gonna have my say. Right here and now, where can’t nobody stop me.
After two years of marriage, a gnawing feeling leads Belinda “Pecan” Morrow to suspect that getting married before the conclusion of her senior year in high school and after her father’s sudden death—was a huge mistake. She packs up her few belongings and her baby girl and attempts to leave her husband, Ricky Morrow, the up-and-coming boxing sensation from Mississippi.
When he catches her, she learns that Ricky has no qualms about using his fists outside of the ring.
As the years rolls by, Pecan does her best to protect herself physically and her four girls emotionally from the tornado that is Ricky. Then one day he crosses the line and their marriage comes to a dramatic end.
But leaving Ricky is only the beginning because as she quickly finds out, he doesn’t need to live under the same roof to wreak havoc in her life.
