Summary
"Delilah Monroe and her husband Rocky always dreamed of their three daughters making it big in show business as a musical trio. After Rocky's death, Delilah's determination is even stronger. However, her daughters--Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha--aren't so sure. Roxanne is a cruiseline entertainer, while Alisha writes jingles for an ad agency by day and secretly composes her own songs at night. Veronica, whose dancing is better than her singing, is the one with the biggest opportunity due to her husband Dexter's grand plans--plans that are at the expense of her sisters'. Delilah wants to keep her daughters together, but they have minds of their own. Soon Roxanne, Veronica, and Alisha embark on their own paths, only to find that the price of fame might be more than they're willing to give. An inspirational family drama, DELILAH'S DAUGHTERS showcases Angela Benson as one of the strongest voices in African-American women's fiction today"--
