Set in New York City, To Whom Much Is Given tells the tale of Avery, a talented, intelligent, and beautiful ‘30-something’ attorney with all the trappings of success as a member of the modern, African American “Talented Tenth.” She has the love and support of a multicultural mosaic of dynamic women friends who augment her life.
Avery is in a serious relationship with Antonio Dawson, a professional football player four years her junior whose family is part of Atlanta’s wealthy and influential ‘African American elite.’
However, like so many contemporary women, she longs for the days when she pursued big, passionate dreams. During this introspective period, her former lover from law school, Dean Everard Swithin, a British aristocrat, re-enters her world making her an offer she cannot possibly refuse. That is when Avery’s own drama begins. Scandal and deception change her heart as well as her perspective. Ultimately, Avery must take steps to confront her past, mend the wounds of her present, and and the strength to fulfill her destiny with the man she loves by her side.
