Item description for Wednesday's Woes by Gayle Jackson Sloan...
From the author of Saturday's Child comes her much anticipated follow-up!
"Wednesday's Child is full of woe."
Zoe Knight certainly wouldn't argue with that. She's got more woes than the law should allow. With an ex-husband that she despises and can no longer trust, a rebellious teenage son with a hoochie-in-training girlfriend, the death of a loved one, and sisters who have lost their minds, can anything else go wrong?
Thankfully, she has her young lover, Antonio, to lean on and help see her through it all. Zoe's certain that they know everything about each other, and he is her only joy at the moment. But can one know everything about another-- even the one you are living and sleeping with? When she gets a very nasty surprise and a serious wake-up call, things begin to spiral out of control.
Follow the twists and turns of Zoe and the rest of the cast for a fast-paced read that will leave you breathless!

Reviews - What do customers think about Wednesday's Woes?
I am woman hear me roar Jul 25, 2008
What is it about being born on a Wednesday? Zoe Knight was born on a Wednesday... Was that Strike One? Her husband cheated on her... Was that Strike Two? If that's the case, Strike three is going to be a real doozy! Do curve balls count? Will it end there or is whatever happens next going to make it a completely new ballgame??? So many secrets.
Zoe is definitely not living the charmed life. Her children bring their own set of problems. Death or despair seem to be waiting for her around every corner. Some of the things a girl goes through in a lifetime can definitely break any camels back.
Have you ever had a lifelong friendship tested? A trust broken? It's enough to break your heart. See how Ms. Sloan has Zoe deal with these issues along with everything else going on in her life. It has to take a strong woman to deal with the difficulties Zoe is made to face and come through the other side a better person. Ms. Sloan is great for showing that side of her female characters, for whatever doesn't kill you tends to make you stronger. At least in Zoe's case it does.
Pick up where Zoe's troubles began... on Wednesday.
Loved It Jun 1, 2007
I really enjoyed this book and it felt like I knew the characters personally. I admired Antonio and the twist in the story took me by surprise. I hope there is a sequel. Keep up the good work.
A lot can happen between Monday and Wednesday ... Aug 8, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Zoe's woes don't just happen on Wednesday, the drama touches every day of the week. Especially since Zoe is catching it from all angles--current man with baby's mama drama; ex-man who still wants to be the next man; family members who can get on the first and last nerve. What's a women to do? Pick up and run away from home? Hey, that is a thought. But Zoe toughs it out and what she does should surprise everyone. Being born on Wednesday does have its advantages. Hats off to Gayle Jackson Sloan. You'll also enjoy Saturday's child. Naleighna Kai, author of Every Woman Needs a Wife.
Whoa! Jun 30, 2006
This was a satisfying second effort by Gayle Jackson Sloan. The book started out a bit slow but then it gripped me towards the middle to no end. It's been years since I read Saturday's Child. I actually want to go back and read it again to refresh my memory on the drama that went down with Sara. With her life finally together, she was a great shoulder to lean on in Wednesday's Woes, but Sister Zoe was the main attraction. Gayle's descriptive style of writing and word usage puts the reader right at the scene of chaos!
There was however a couple of loose ends in this book. I was intrigued by Stephanie's attitude and questionable sexuality. Why was she completely cut out of the book after the funeral was all said and done and her checked bounced? What happened to Gina?? Also, Zoe's dislike of Chris's girlfriend Tribby was mentioned far too many times. I was hoping the girl would at least make an actual appearance in one of the chapters.
I haven't read enough about this family yet. Another "follow-up" please?
The Next Terry McMillian Jun 4, 2006
Wednesday's Woes was an excellent piece of art work, comparable to Terry McMillian. The novel discussed death, sisterly love, sexual relationships, divorce, blended familes, and so much more. However, Terry can't touch Sloan's sex scenes. Gayle gave you something to think about...
