Book Summary

With the unique blend of truth and humor that made her first novel, What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day, a huge bestseller, Pearl Cleage returns with an extraordinary novel that is rich in character, steeped in sisterhood, and bursting with unexpected love... and maybe just a little magic.

Depending on the time of day, Regina Burns is a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown or an overdue breakthrough. One shattered heart and six months of rehab have left her wary and shell-shocked—especially with the prospect of taking a temporary consulting job in Atlanta, a move that would allow Regina to rescue the family home that she borrowed against when she was “a stomp down dope fiend.” Her stone-faced banker has grudgingly agreed to give her sixty days to settle her debts or lose the house.

Returning to Atlanta is a big risk. Last time Regina was there, she lost track of who she was and what she wanted. There’s a lot of emotional baggage with her new employer, Beth Davis. Can she really forgive Beth for breaking up her wedding plans on New Year’s Eve because she just didn’t think Regina was good enough to marry her son?

Meanwhile, Regina’s visionary Aunt Abbie has told her to be on the lookout for a handsome stranger with “the ocean in his eyes” who has a bone to pick and a promise to keep. Then a blue-eyed brother appears on the streets of Afro-Atlanta wearing a black cashmere overcoat, flashing a dazzling smile, and lending a helping hand when Regina needs it most. But between falling for Blue Hamilton and dealing with Beth, secrets will emerge that will threaten to send her life twisting in surprising new directions.

Like a conversation with a good friend, Some Things I Never Thought I’d Do shares hope, love, and laugher. As always, it is Pearl Cleage’s unforgettable characters and her gift for dialogue that will earn this provocative new novel a place in the hearts of her growing family of readers.

    I really enjoyed this book--Pearl Cleage has a wonderful knack for heartwarming love stories and then sneaking in a little politics (lol). All in all, she's weaved and wonderful love story--one that has traveled through time--literally!

    I love Pearl Cleage. I just do. Her books just make me smile, laugh, gasp, mmmm hmmmm, and I'm sure there are a lot more things I do out loud when I'm reading or listening to her books. For me, her books are relate-able . I can see the characters and feel what I think they are feeling. In this book, man... the main character could have been me. I related on so many levels. I felt so much (and not the feelings like, you wish the book was over type feelings). When I FEEL when reading a book, and I mean when something stirs inside me and I'm thinking, oh yeah...this is some good stuff, that's what makes it awesome.

    Thanks so much for all the emotion and positive thought that was evoked from this book. Beautifully written.

    If you want some good vibes, especially from some of the not so great life situations, read this.
    We can all hold our head up after making some not so great choices.

    LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Pearl!
