Dominique L. Watson, business owner and author of three inspirational books, penned her first urban fiction novel. Ari, Heaven, Marissa and Katora are four women, who share a special friendship as they find out how much they all have in common. Each woman goes through life's difficult struggles, which force upon them to make tough decisions that will lead to new paths in some unexpected journeys. After all secrets are revealed, does the friendship between all four ladies become stronger, or totally destroyed? What kind of trouble does Heaven get into, and how often does she get into trouble? How does Ari survive her childhood, after being raised by her mother, who battled alcoholism, and hardship? Why did Ari attend Nursing school, and what was her real dream? Why did Katora dread visiting her mom's house, and why is Ziaha so mean to Katora? Why did Marissa feel like a mom, while still attending high school, and what major crisis did she face at age fifteen? I highly recommend this novel to all fiction lovers, who enjoy inspirational stories, dealing with friendship, family and the different roads we all take through life's journey. Each story told by the author about the lives of the four ladies will indeed tug at the reader's heart as we witness courage, strength, and determination. What lies and secrets will be revealed, and who will confess? How did Marissa's married life change? Where did Heaven meet Terrence, and who knew about her relationship with him? Does Ari convince her mom to stop drinking? Why was Mama Angie worried about Heaven, and what was Heaven afraid to tell her? Step into the lives of four unique characters, while you experience the storms, the darkness and life's lessons we learn, but never forget. "TOO MUCH UNTOLD" is as touching as WAITING TO EXHALE, with Whitney Houston, and Angela Bassett.
