From the Back Cover:

Readers of Alice Walker's The Color Purple will find in these stories further evidence of her power to depict black women-women who vary greatly in background but are bound together by their vulnerability to life: Roselily, on her wedding day, surrounded by her four children, prays that a loveless marriage will bring her respectability; a young writer, exploited by both her lover and her husband, wreaks an ironic vengeance; a jealous wife, looking for her husband's mistress, finds a competitor she cannot fight; an old woman, thrown out of a white church, meets God on a highway. These are just a few of the seekers of dignity and love whom Alice Walker portrays in this astonishing collection.
"Alice Walker is one of the best American writers of today."--The Washington Post
"Walker dares to reveal truths about men and women, about blacks and whites, about God and love. . . . And we, like Alice Walker's marvelous characters, come away transformed by knowledge and love but most of all by wonder."--Essence
