What is Faded Diamonds about?

The Godhand Women’s Home houses two hundred of South Florida’s most desperate young women, and what begins as Leila Sudders’ refuge from her turbulent past quickly becomes a distorted mirror of her own darkness, so she does what she does best as she awaits her child’s birth: close up.

But despite her waning efforts, her toughness carves a path of treacherous consequence that intensifies as her due date draws near, which erupts when she crosses four other desperate women suffering from borderline personality disorder, PTSD, and schizophrenia. One of the five, missionary counselor Diana, fights tooth and nail to empower the others to overcome their demons and see their hidden beauty.

Three brilliant minds created Faded Diamonds - Camille Burke, Stacey Pacouloute and Mellissa Thomas.
