The Women of Brewster Place
Mr B's review
From behind the battered doors of an apartment block, come the stories of seven courageous black women. Each has suffered knocks and setbacks, each has lived a life defined by social injustice, each has finally found herself here – in Brewster Place.
From stoic Mattie to sassy Etta, from righteous Kiswana to baby-mad Cora Lee, the women of Brewster Place are united in their resilience, their humanity and their collective ambition for brighter futures.
Poignant and gritty, The Women of Brewster Place is a remarkably powerful portrait of strength and hope, set against the backdrop of underprivileged urban America.
