"'Families are their stories,' said my grandfather Martin that late autumn day in 2001, as he placed a clear plastic folder containing his journal into my hands."
A collection of poetry on various subjects.
Susie White wants no picket fences, no alpha, and no cubs. White wolf woman she may be, but no pack for her, no sireee. Alpha me not, that’s her motto. In all caps. Half-breed wolf Joe Huroq’s not looking for a mate. His job in international security’s too dangerous and too erratic for relationships. Stop and go screwing, that’s his motto—hot and heavy between missions. Then he glimpses his new neighbor tanning nude and the situation explodes. Literally. Susie’s house is consumed by fire. What’s Joe to do but offer Susie sanctuary? Susie can’t resist the temptation of hunky bad-ass Joe. She suggests a friends with benefits arrangement, which he accepts with remarkable alacrity. The sex is frantic, steaming, and non-stop. Neither one can keep their hands off the other. Then Joe’s best friend’s son is kidnapped on the way home from school, the fire’s deemed arson, and two other kids go missing. A serial killer’s on the loose, and he has Susie in his sights. Susie refuses to accept Joe’s mate claim. Can he keep her safe when she won’t obey a single order?
Two young people, one white and one deemed black, products of their environment, separated by the rigid, inhumane caste system of the Jim Crow South, meet by chance, bond, and begin a forbidden relationship which nurtures and grows, even when they attempt to terminate it, knowing the potential consequences if they are discovered. As they secretly flaunt the laws and traditions of the day, they aggressively pursue their individual ambitions to escape the equally binding economic shackles. As their commitment to each other becomes stronger, they become bolder, and challenge the status quo in ways that cannot be ignored by the power structure. Their actions coupled with fate trigger unforeseen events with tragic consequences.
Grace Brantley is a curious and imaginative six-year-old girl trying to cope with a divided and constantly changing family environment. The story follows Grace through a turbulent childhood where the only stabilizing elements to be found are her widowed grandmother and a devoted uncle. Grace finds comfort and safety in the few things she can relate to as constants in her life, such as the town where she lives, its inhabitants, and her ongoing fascination with the Ohio River and the mysteries it hides. Grace's intense need to hold on to certain relationships while allowing others to become less important, provide a glimpse into the mind of a child trying to find a quality of life that will allow her to understand values and set priorities. The search takes Grace to places where no child should have to go, but it also reveals the true essence of life, which she finds, can at times be beautiful, but also cruel and demanding, even with the very young. Without even realizing it, Grace finds through her continuous struggles to cope a resolve that is both enlightening and creative in spirit. Her self-confidence is brought about through the balance that is found in the understanding of not only people, but of nature itself. Her childlike faith in God, having been instilled in her early on by her grandmother, will provide the much-needed tension to maintain that balance.
The National Book Award-winning novel that launched the brilliant career of Gloria Naylor (1950-2016) In her heralded first novel, Gloria Naylor weaves together the stories of seven women living in Brewster Place, a bleak-inner city sanctuary, creative a powerful, moving portrait of the strengths, struggles, and hopes of black women in America. Vulnerable and resilient, openhanded and openhearted, these women forge their lives in a place that in turn threatens and protects - a common prison and a shared home. Adapted into a 1989 ABC miniseries starring Oprah Winfrey, The Women of Brewster Place is a contemporary classic - and a touching and unforgettable read. "[A] shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly." -The New York Times Book Review
