9780345413628: Big Girls Don't Cry

"[An] empathetic 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.                      

This brilliant new novel, from the bestselling author of Sisters & Lovers, traces three decades in the life of a woman readers will not soon forget, as she searches for love and purpose in a harsh often unforgiving world.                      

"Contains an infectious hope and optimism."        
--Los Angeles Times

From the Publisher:

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.

From the Inside Flap:

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In her eagerly-awaited second novel Big Girls Don t Cry, bestselling author Connie Briscoe ( Sisters and Lovers ) examines the issues faced by a young black woman determined to be successful both professionally and romantically. Growing up in a loving and supportive middle-class family in Washington, DC, in the 60s, Naomi Jefferson worries about what to wear, her bra size and meeting boys, and she has dreams of one day opening her own clothing store. While she knows racism is a problem (occasional brushes with the uglier side of people don t let her forget it), Naomi is, at heart, just like any other teenage girl. All of that changes when Joshua, Naomi s older brother, is killed in an accident on his way to a civil rights demonstration in Chicago. Racism becomes a personal issue, and Naomi decides that she needs to help bring about changes in the system. At college in Atlanta, she becomes immersed in politics, organizing protests and butting heads with school administrations as well as with her boyfriend, who isn t too friendly to the cause. Disillusioned by authority figures and betrayed by the man she loves, Naomi returns home, confused about the world and her place in it. Witty, sensitive, bittersweet and triumphant, Big Girls Don t Cry is a compelling portrait of a woman who refuses to compromise her standards -- cloudy as they may be at times -- in her quest for satisfaction. In Big Girls Don t Cry, Briscoe has created a heroine and a story to which any woman who has faced the frustrations of glass ceilings, the pain of loss and sacrifice and the perils and pleasures of love will immediately relate.
