Uptown Review-Words of Inspiration Book Club
Dwight sits atop the Harlem real estate throne is father King carved out years ago. Dwight wants nothing more than to step from the long shadows his father has cast and create a name for himself in the real estate world. But at what cost? Dwight wants to change the façade of Harlem by selling his soul to the devil, throwing folks under the bus and offering sacrificial lambs for slaughtering. Dwight’s “by any means necessary” attitude might cause the empire that he dreams of to come crashing down before it is made a reality.
Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant do not disappoint in this drama filled thriller. DeBerry and Grant clearly illustrate the cutthroat world of Manhattan real estate and the tension and turbulence that this world can bring to families trying to get a slice of that American pie. While Avery searches for her identity, Dwight begins to lose his. DeBerry and Grant do a fine job of artistically crafting these characters and the supporting characters that bring Avery and Dwight to life from the pages. DeBerry and Grant deliver with their usual grace, humor, style and eye to detail. Uptown is a read not to be missed by old fans or new
