Read full description of the books:
This is a sweet and charming story about the joys and struggles of relationships. It's also about change: changes to neighborhoods, changes of aging, changes of different phases of life, and changes in relationships. Maxine lives on one coast while her aging grandmother, the former jazz singer who raised her, is on the other. She's pregnant but still getting over her husband's affair after they lost their first child to miscarriage. She's also a television producer on a show that's about to be axed with pressure from all sides.
It's a story about race, but really about how we are all the same no matter what color we are. We all want the same things: love, companionship, success, family, and community.
My only beefs with the story are: 1. Satchel's affair came out a little late. The first chapter made it seem like they were perfectly simpatico and there were no issues, so the affair was a big surprise. I would've liked a tiny hint. and 2. The stress and worry about the Ted show was a major thing for Maxine but its resolution was a bit unremarkable. I kind of wanted a showdown with Patrick. It may well have been the point since there's a strong suggestion that Maxine won't return to television, but I still kept feeling something was left unsaid/undone.
