Sisters and Lovers
Synopses & Reviews
"A FRANK AND FUNNY TALE about the everyday lives of three Black women."
Beverly, Charmaine, and Evelyn are three sisters living in the same Maryland town outside Washington, D.C., each wishing her life were just a little different. Beverly is twenty-nine and single. She's a successful magazine editor who would love to be in love. The problem is, no man can meet her high standards. Charmaine longs to finish her degree, but meanwhile, she has to juggle a thankless job, a beautiful child, and an irresponsible husband she doesn't quite have the nerve to leave. Evelyn seems to have it made. She has a successful psychology practice and her husband is a partner in a prestigious law firm. But there's trouble in paradise, and Evelyn refuses to face the facts.
Warm and bittersweet, believable and real, SISTERS & LOVERS is a novel of family and love, heartache and hope, and above all, the triumph of sisterhood.
"RIVETING . . . LIVELY . . . HILARIOUS . . . Three sisters who are remarkably different except in one respect: Their men are driving them crazy."
"HUMOROUS, POIGNANT, REALISTIC, AND ROMANTIC . . . Finely crafted . . . [Sisters & Lovers] skillfully uses witty but realistic dialogue to keep the story moving along. . . . Recommended."
"ENTIRELY READABLE . . . Briscoe's message is a warm one."
--The Washington Post Book World
Beverly, Charmaine, and Evelyn are three sisters all living in the same city, but in very different worlds. They have at least one thing in common, though--they are each reaching their personal breaking points. A compulsively readable contemporary novel that follows the loves, choices, intrigues, and rivalries of three close-knit sisters.
