A saga of two cleaning ladies, one white, one black, they meet in post-World War II, in 1940s Los Angeles, California. They form a friendship and business relationship that would eventually lead to betrayal, love, and heartbreak, between the women and in generations that would follow. I’ve read this a few times. It’s a worthwhile read, very intriguing, poignant and heartwarming.
