A deliciously rebellious short story collection by Deesha Philyaw, The Secret Lives of Church Ladies follows a cast of Black women navigating social pressure, the hurdles and joys of being in love and momentary reprieves from being ‘good’.

Fourteen-year-old Jael nurses a crush on the preacher’s wife. A mother bakes a sublime peach cobbler every Monday for her date with the married Pastor. Eula and Caroletta, single childhood friends, seek solace in each other’s arms every New Year’s Eve. With their secret longings, new love and forbidden affairs, these church ladies are by turns seductive, unrepentant, vulnerable and free.
