Yes, actually big girls do cry and Connie Briscoe has a way of making us both cry
and laugh (with recognition) at the foibles of the characters in Connie's novels. These
characters are memorable and loads of fun and they inevitably grow stronger as the
novel progresses. Connie is so supremely talented and gifted that I -- like many of
her fans -- can't wait for the next novel.
mpathetic portrait of a modern woman wrestling with issues of love, work, and family obligations." --Publishers Weekly
Born into a comfortable Washington, D.C., home, Naomi Jefferson leads a life that is only occasionally marred by racism. As a teenager in the 1960s, her biggest concern centers around virginity. But all that changes when her older brother, Joshua--who seems destined for greatness--is killed in a tragic car accident on his way to a civil rights demonstration. Now the rift between black and white America becomes much too personal, and Naomi embarks on a journey to honor her brother's legacy--and to find herself.
