The book is a classic. It follows the quest of several women, a quest for freedom, for a life more fulfilling.

Another one, Mother, is considered a saint. Grace and Divine are some of the characters' names.

Hi Kim,

Linden Hills does portray an exclusive town, but it's not it. Thank for participating, though. :)

Here's an additional clue: it's a book by Toni Morrison...

I think it may be Toni Morrison's Paradise. Some of the women at the Convent had unusual names.
