Professional reviews

"The perceived sins of the mother are visited upon the daughters in Marie-Elena John's multilayered debut novel about three generations of black women. Throughout her career, actress Robin Miles has delighted listeners with her interpretations of colorful characters of the African diaspora. Here, Miles adds texture and layers, using accents and cultural nuances to enhance the story of activist Lillian Baptiste and the mysterious lives of her mother and grandmother. Miles's rhythmic delivery takes listeners on Lillian's journey of self-discovery through time--from Africa and the Caribbean, full-circle to modern-day Washington, DC. G.O.
