Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Here is a new and distinct voice among contemporary black women writers. Golden's first novel follows the lives of three women, from college friendship through the establishment of adult lives. Faith (later Aisha when she converts to Islam) feels out of place at the exclusive Boston college where they first meet and drops out. Social activist Serena yearns for something more and finds it working in Africa. Tall, brilliant, poetic Crystal is the most introspective, struggling to commit herself to her white lover. The story is told by alternating narrators, including friends and family, making it rather choppy. The characters never seem to reveal themselves as fully as one might wish, but Marita Golden is clearly a promising new novelist. Ann H. Fisher, Radford P.L., Va.
