"I loved the characters in Gloria Naylor's book, The Women of Brewster Place. I read through the book and felt like I was one of them. They were so real and so flawed that I couldn't help but connect and care for them. This is an empowering story about how one family used to be, and how they became better people. I loved the book, and I would recommend it to everyone."-Audrey
