What's Mine and Yours

Decades. Naima Coster packs so much of the range of human experience in a handful of characters across a few decades in her novel titled, What’s Mine and Yours. The narrative moves back and forth in time, as we get to know these characters and how they navigate through life and its struggles. We settle in to appreciate the different ways that families are made and broken, and how love and marriage can be both deep and fragile, strong and weak. It doesn’t take long for us to care deeply about what happens to these characters as they go through their lives. Coster addresses issues of contemporary life with a light touch, since it is all done through those characters that we come to know and appreciate as humans just like us, doing their best with the hands they’ve been dealt. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase What’s Mine and Yours from amazon.com.
