A woman’s impression of her family is dismantled by revelations of the past in a haunting story about identity, memories, and the power of secrets by the New York Times bestselling author of Black Cake.

One year after her mother’s death, a woman prepares to celebrate her fortieth birthday. Digging through a trunk in the attic, looking for keepsakes for the occasion, she discovers photographs that call into question everything she believed about her life. The truth is a different story—one of a little girl in danger, a lie, and a mother’s love so fierce it led her to do the unimaginable.

Charmaine Wilkerson’s Deluge is part of Good Intentions, a riveting collection of stories about the instincts, fears, and fierce love inherent in motherhood from award-winning, bestselling authors. Read or listen to each in a single sitting.

Charmaine Wilkerson is the New York Times bestselling author of Black Cake, soon to be a Hulu original series. A graduate of Barnard College and Stanford University, her award-winning fiction has appeared in various anthologies and magazines.

My review for book 1 in this series
My review for book 2 in this series

This was my first time reading from this author. I'm not sure if I would pick up something else by her. Not that she isn't a great writer, I just think her stories are not for me. I took a moment to reflect and then forgot to write my thoughts down. A few days later I went to see what I wrote and saw nothing there. I tried to think back on the story and couldn't recall a word of it. I had to re-read it. That made me realize I didn't get invested enough to enjoy it. Sadly, I wasn't much more invested the second time around either.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
