EMERGING COCOON is the long-awaited sequel to the sincere and realistic novel, “Silk.” It is about five generational women: Crystal, Joy, Genny, Margaret and Sylvia, who are best friends as they take a well-deserved trip. However, friendship is not scripted or rehearsed and they had no idea WHAT was going to ’emerge’ from this trip. Betrayal, lies, secrets and surprises not only ‘transform’ this trip, but also the ladies individually, and as a whole.
