From the critically acclaimed author of The Young Wives Club, a heartwarming story about friendship, heartache, and self-discovery (Karen White), comes a charming novel reminiscent of the works of Mary Alice Monroe and Kristy Woodson Harvey, about three sisters who win a huge lottery prize and learn what it truly means to be lucky.
Lexi, Callie, and Hanna Breaux grew up in small-town Louisiana, and have always struggled to make ends meet. For years, they've been playing the lottery, fantasizing about how much better life would be if they had the money.
For Lexi, it means the perfect wedding; for Callie, it means having the courage to go after her career dreams; and for Hanna, it means buying a house that isn't falling apart and sending her bullied son to private school. When the incredible happens and the Breaux sisters hit it big, $204 million dollars big; all their dreams come true. Or so they think. Because it's actually not a cliché, money isn't the answer to everything, and it often comes with problems of it's own.
