Diamond's Peal is a blunt but urban epic starring Diamond, a girl whose life is turned inside out because of her mother's austere rules and the fact that she felt like the black sheep of the family. Her older sister and younger brother were very aloof when it came to Diamond and she hadn't seen her father since she was a youth. This led to her becoming promiscuous and looking for love in all of the wrong places. This landed her with more than she bargained for and a child to whom the father was unknown. She was given several chances, she even moved to Ohio for a better life, but will she learn?
