For ten years succesful attorney Rianne Hazelton lived her life in the shadow of her diastrous marriage to British-Ghanian oil tycoon, Xavier Osei. Her carefully constructed life comes crashing down when she comes face to face with him at her estranged sister´s wedding in her native St. Croix. Will she finally expunge the demons of her brief marriage? Can the sisters put their painful past behind them? Xavier has a secret, about a woman she never understood, her mother, the time to tell her is now but will it consume her and doom their love forever?

Reeling from her mother's sudden death, law student Rianne Hazelwood travels to Ghana as a way to heal and find out more about the place her mother called her second home. Falling in love with an African man was the last thing on her mind, but Xavier Osei is no ordinary man. Their whirlwind marriage produced a swift ruthless heartache that left Rianne incapable of loving another man again. Ten years after escaping her doomed marriage, they meet again in beautiful St. Croix. Xavier is determined to win his wife back and she is determined to return to her carefully constructed life without him. But when he finally reveals what he knows about her family secrets, the shock is too much to bear. She learns deception and love are the two greatest forces on earth, what will she do now that both have joined forces against her?

In Sins of the Mother by Sandia Lowe, we are introduced to Rianne Hazelton, a successful New York attorney, who feels she has moved on with her life without regrets since leaving her husband in Accra, Ghana 10 years ago. Little does Rianne know that her life is about to unravel on many levels when she travels to her home and family in St. Croix to be the maid-of-honor in her sister's wedding. Imagine her surprise, when she discovers the best man is her ex-husband, oil tycoon Xavier Osei. Xavier wants answers as to why his wife left him in Accra, Ghana and has been hiding from him all of these years. Will Rianne and Xavier each get the answers they want so they can stop living in the past?
