In Sheep's Clothing Review


Extraordinarily talented author, Mary Monroe, is known for insightful, dramatic, and poignant stories that spin an intricate web between friends, lovers and family until they are finally caught up in their secrets, deceptions, and truths.



In Sheep's Clothing transports readers into the life of Trudy. Trudy is unhappily looking forward to a future of cooking, cleaning and unsatisfying relationship with a fiancé who spends his evenings slumped in front of the television. She yearns for the confidence to pursue the passionate relationships and experiences she craves. As the wedding nears, she determines to change and begins by finding another job. She feels like a new woman and is liked by everyone—except the only other African American at the company, Ann, a high-level manager and a snob who despises Trudy for her background. Trudy’s not going to let her ruin her new life. In fact, she’s found a way to make it better. She “takes” Ann’s life. First by using company credit cards, including Ann’s. Then, when people continue to confuse the two of them, Ann’s identity. Trudy has everything she wants, at least until she meets a man determined to settle a score with Ann—at any cost.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
The third child of Alabama sharecroppers, and the first and only member of her family to finish high school Mary Monroe is the Essence® bestselling author of God Don’t Like Ugly, which earned the author the PEN/Oakland Josephine Miles National Literary Award and a nomination for the Black Writers Alliance’s Golden Pen Award. Her other novels are God Still Don’t Like Ugly, The Upper Room, Red Light Wives and Gonna Lay Down Mv Burdens, which is named among theBET.com Best Books of 2002.

Monroe, who says “I graduated high school by the skin of my teeth,” never attended college or any writing classes. A storyteller since childhood, writing at first came somewhat easily to Monroe. Later, advice from Alice Walker, Ann Rice, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison encouraged her to continue to pursue her writing. Today, Monroe is included in the reference book, The 100 Most Popular African American Writers.
