"A multigenerational saga . . . about forgiveness and redemption. Lavish and funny and perfect."-- The Los Angeles Times

Sweeping across fifty years of family, friendship, betrayal and reconciliation, What You Owe Me is Bebe Moore Campbell's most ambitious achievement in storytelling. When Hosanna Clark--a hotel maid in post-World War II Los Angeles--first meets her new co-worker, Holocaust survivor Gilda Rosenstein, she is shocked to see a white woman in a situation so like her own. They quickly become friends, then business partners. But when their cosmetics company meets with unprecedented success, Gilda disappears with the profits--and leaves behind an emotional debt that grows with time, in the hearts and souls of generations to come. . . .
