about this book

The New York Times Bestseller

The 1997 Blackboard African American Bestseller's Book of the Year

Born into a comfortable Washington, D.C. home, Naomi Jefferson leads a life that is only occasionally marred by racism.  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. Naomi begins a search for love and purpose in a harsh, often unforgiving world.

"An empathetic portrait of a modern woman wrestling with issues of love, work and family obligations." --Publishers Weekly

"Brims with warmth, energy, and a positive message." --San Francisco Chronicle
