The Women of Brewster Place - Gloria Naylor - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Women of Brewster Street:

The biographies of a dead-end street. 

My favorite Gloria Naylor quote from the book:

"Who the hell are THEY?"

Questions to ponder while reading The Women of Brewster Place:

What dreams have you given up?

What "thing" has held you back?

My review of the book:

A book about all the weird twists and turns life takes.

I was totally engrossed in each story.

*There is a rather graphic couple of pages about a sexual assault - not for the faint or young of heart.*
