Annotation:
Three African American women and one white woman work at a beauty shop called Blessings. This novel tells their stories, and describes their intersecting lives.

Praise

San Francisco Chronicle
"The African American girlfriend novel is popular these days, with good reason. The characters are usually average women doing the best they can, and the plots are uplifting. Best of all, the stories are told in a vernacular as familiar and comforting to most Americans as listening to 'The Star-Spangled Banner'....True to form, Sheneska Jackson's hearty third novel, 'Blessings', is an immensely entertaining tale of sisterhood in the face of contemporary dilemmas." 05/04/1998
