For the Yada prayer sisters, gettin' caught up in troubles isn't the problem; it's how to get free.
Ruth and Ben are caught up in an unplanned pregnancy-in their fifties Chanda is deluded by the glitter of her lottery dream come true. Florida wants to move her family, hoping to leave trouble behind, but it looks like it may catch up with her anyway. Avis is torn between honoring her new husband and helping her abused adult daughter, who keeps running home to Mama.
If there's an upside, it's that all this trouble reveals the subtle lies the Yadas believe about God, themselves, each other, and life.
