"[A] shrewd and lyrical portrayal of many of the realities of black life . . . Miss Naylor bravely risks sentimentality and melodrama to write her compassion and outrage large, and she pulls it off triumphantly." -The New York Times Book Review
"The most refreshing voice in the black idiom since readers first discovered Toni Morrison." -Claude Brown, author of Manchild in the Promised Land
"Naylor creates a completely believable, and very frightening, world of degradation, violence and human - very human - courage and sturdiness." Chicago Sun-Times
"Vibrating with undisguised emotion, The Women of Brewster Place springs from the same roots that produces the blues. Like them, [Naylor's] book sings of sorrow proudly borne by black women in America." -The Washington Post

While each woman's situation isn't ideal and the conditions are bleak the story is full of hope and promise making the characters relatable and human. I found myself sad and upset in their times of misfortune and cheering them on in times of awareness and courage. It is probably not a book I would have chosen on my own but I didn't mind reading it. It was easy to follow and engaged me as a reader.
