Brothers and Sisters
Brothers and Sisters is set in the white-hot center of racially troubled Los Angeles, still healing from the deep scars of riot, violence, and suspicion. At the story's heart is Esther Jackson, an African-American who has built a promising career at a downtown bank. When a black man is hired as a senior vice-president, Esther is heartened - until his interest in a white officer at the bank percolates into sexual harassment. Esther is forced to choose between commitment to the friend who is being harassed and loyalty to a person of her own race. When a looting of bank accounts creates suspicions along racial lines, Esther must rethink her life even further, and her vision of the American dream.

Review: Brothers and SistersUser Review - Roy - Goodreads
I happened to be in the process of reading Brothers and Sisters when I encountered Bebe Moore Campbell at the annual Harlem Book Fair several years back, so this is one of the few books I own that is autographed by the author. Not so much a review as a useless tidbit of information. :-) Read full review
Review: Brothers and SistersUser Review - Abby Frucht - Goodreads
I so enjoyed this book. It's an accessible, entertaining, smart, fun read that openly addresses racism and sexism in the white collar workplace. It was published in 1994; I can only hope that the situations it describes with so much wit and passion are at least in part no longer current. Read full review
