Rising literary star ReShondaTate Billingsley returns with"MyBrother's Keeper" (Pocket paperback, $12), a tale of the complex,consuming dynamics that rule family life.


At the center of the story is Aja (pronounced Asia) James. Aja hasn't had it easy. She has kept a close watch over her siblings ever since tragedy robbed them of their parents. Tired of carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, Aja is ready for a change. Her best friend, Roxie, knows just what to do — she sets Aja up on a date with one of the most sought after bachelors in town, handsome sportscaster Charles Clayton. Charles is everything Aja has ever dreamed of — sensitive, sexy and charming. But "happily ever after" isn't that simple.


While Aja has rebounded from the loss of her parents, her sister and brother have not. Jada is lost in a world of silence with no way for Aja to reach her, and Eric's uncontrollable rage is wreaking havoc on his life. As Aja sees her brother heading down the same violent path that destroyed their family, she makes it her business to stop the cycle — even if it means putting her own life, and her own chance at love, on hold.
