Sobre este título:


Once the home of poor Irish and Italian immigrants, Brewster Place, a rotting tenement on a dead-end street, now shelters black families. This novel portrays the courage, the fear, and the anguish of some of the women there who hold their families together, trying to make a home. Among them are: Mattie Michael, the matriarch who loses her son to prison; Etta Mae Johnson who tries to trade the 'high life' for marriage with a local preacher; Kiswana Browne who leaves her middle-class family to organize a tenant's union.

Sinopsis: This is a portrait of Brewster Place where the coloured women cursed, badgered, worshipped, and shared their men. They were hard-edged, soft-centered, brutally demanding, and easily pleased. Like an ebony phoenix, each in her own time and her own season had a story.
