Told from the alternating perspectives of the three Butler sisters, Althea, Viola, and Lillian, The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls is a family drama that shows what happens when past trauma meets new family turmoil.
Althea, the eldest sister and substitute matriarch, has always been strong willed and in charge of their family as well as a respected member of their local community. But when Althea and her husband Proctor are arrested, the family is quickly disgraced and Viola and Lillian must figure out how to pick up the pieces and raise Althea's two teenage daughters. But the past has a way of coming back, and the sisters must also deal with the emotional trauma's of their past and learn how to forgive before they can move forward as a family.
Gray's debut is a stunning portrait of the heart and core of an American family in a story that is as page-turning as it is important.
