[Book Review] SUNDAY BRUNCH by Norma Jarrett


Wendi Glenn reviews SUNDAY BRUNCH by Norma Jarrett (Harlem Moon, 2004)

Five women meet and become friends while in law school in Houston. They remain in touch by having a weekly Sunday brunch. Although their lives have taken various turns, their friendship has endured.

Lexi is the level-headed one. She is faithful, but wonders why her prayers for a mate are going unanswered. Jermane is married to a man who is married to his job, and she feels neglected. Capri is an up-and-coming lawyer with it all. Jewel is spoiled, materialistic and she uses men. Angel, who is divorced and dealing with health issues, rounds out the group.

This book deals with these women and their relationships with God, with their families and with each other. It reminds me a lot of the TV show Girlfriends. You can’t help but wish these women the best.
