Struggles of the Women Folk is just one of the several inspiring books that Brown has written. When asked about her motivation to write this book.

Released in 2014, Struggles of the Women Folk, is still one of the most popular titles in Amazon’s category of African American literary fiction. One reader summed up the overall appeal of the book. She said: “What a relatable book!! The story of Georgie, her mother and her Aunt Adele is the story of my mother, my great grandmother and all of my aunts who lived through this period in our history. You have to admire the strength and resiliency of all the characters while at the same time being cognizant of their vulnerability and lack of control over their own lives. Life threw curves but the women in this story persevered and maintained their tenuous hold on life.”
