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.
