You'll never forget them. Aletha. Desiree. Veronica. Debra. Janeen. Louise. Six black baby boomers whose paths crisscross and collide in a wickedly funny, emotionally charged rollercoaster ride of love and hate, jealousy and passion, ambition and desire. They're gingersnaps--spicy and hard, brown and bold--women who refuse to let their cookies crumble when faced with a challenge.
ALETHA: This reigning queen of the talk shows makes a hurricane look like a breeze--but a royal snag in her love life changes her into a shooting star.
DESIREE: Since she's a sister-friend Sigmund Freud, many women "lie" on her couch--but some minds are beyond therapy.
VERONICA: The executive producer of The Aletha Brown Show is a master juggler--until the daddy of her newborn baby takes his act on the road.
DEBRA: What's harder than pushing forty is your overbearing mother pushing you to find a man--in all the wrong directions.
JANEEN: This hot young interior decorator has finally found a man with style--but his favorite pattern is about to clash with her romantic fantasies big-time.
LOUISE: When this controversial ex-nun and bestselling author of Black Men: How to Find One, How to Get One, How to Keep One promotes her book it's a riot--literally.
Rollicking, poignant, and keenly observed, Gingersnaps is a remarkable debut. For what happens when all these friends, lovers, relatives, and associates prepare for a Christmas party in Connecticut is not to be believed. And even if there are no "White Christmas" carols being sung, the chestnuts will definitely be roasting.
