Praise for 'What you Owe Me'

The book is absolutely wonderful! Bebe Moore Campbell is once again at her best. A prolific author who entangles readers into another world, and has them emerging with a sense of completeness and new knowledge of life's important lessons.

This book is on my shelf next to Beach Music. The author is the best I have read in years. The lines that twisted and braided through the characters, their unique places in this life and on their ancestral chains create a beauty product for all, black,white.hispanic, male, female, Jew and NonJew, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, fathers and daughters, and mothers and sons. My friends will hear about this book!

Well-written story that runs across generations and cultural boundaries.

Misrepresented
I think that their were entirely to many characters to weed through and her disgruntled father should have been dead. His character was very misplace. Also the story was very misdirected; I believe that the story should have been broader as to the main plot. There should have been no money paid out by Matriece because her mother Hosanna, and her mother were business partners, they had a binding contract of proof that was put together by a lawyer. If they had a real binding contract Matriece proposed if anything she should of been part owner or even better. It would have been a better plot for Matriece to take the company totally from Gilda.
Bibliophiend

Campbell should have the success of Terry McMillan. Her writing is much better and her characters are more well drawn. This book once again follows the lives of several families and generations, and she once again makes all the characters believable, real people rather than stereotypical portraits. While I enjoyed this book, it isn't her best work, however. Would highly recommend Brothers and Sisters.
