Brothers and Sisters
Location(s): Los Angeles
Era(s): Late 20th century
Set against the smoldering embers of post-riot Los Angeles, Brothers and Sisters confirms Bebe Moore Campbell’s reputation for fiction that “cuts close to the bone of real life” (Atlanta Journal).
Esther Jackson is a bank manager who’s worked hard to keep her passions in check. Sensitive to injustice, but struggling against hostility and mistrust, she forms a tentative friendship with Mallory Post, a white co-worker who seems sometimes to live in a different–and unreachable–world.
But when an attractive black man is hired as a senior vice president at the bank, with troubling and unexpected consequences for both of these women, Esther is forced to question her deepest loyalties and desire–and what really makes us “brothers and sisters.”
