Read from January 24 to 26, 2012

Although the premise of the Black woman working as a nanny for the yuppie white couple who eventually falls for the husband might seem a little cliched, what makes this story work is the writing. The fresh voice of Lori Tharps captures the sights, smells, places and people of New York with flair.

Tharps offers a conclusion which will satisfy some readers and yet may offend others. The only question is whether Zora, Brad and Kate will rise above the pile of smouldering ashes.
