(From the publisher):
Marlene Covington is the devout wife of a preacher who's been locked up for a crime that may have been committed by their troubled twenty-one-year-old son. Keisha Reed is an L.A. mom struggling to make ends meet, while the faithless father of her two kids serves his prison time. Rosalinda Morales works two jobs to support her ailing mother and pay legal fees for her career-criminal lover. Alexis DuBoise has come a long way from a New Orleans ghetto to the posh Bel Air home she shares with her husband — until he goes to jail for embezzlement.
They're four savvy, self-sufficient women who meet at a correctional facility in the California desert. They call themselves the "Ladies in Waiting," but these ladies aren't sitting around praying for a miracle that will bring their men back to them. They're taking steps that include the power of prayer to make some changes in their lives.
Marlene, Keisha, Rosalinda and Alexis are helping each other get through the tough times, and face the truth about the men they love. But exciting new things could be in each of their futures — if they can let faith lead them….
