Professional reviews

"A successful African-American businesswoman painfully reviews her traumatic past after a cancer diagnosis. Patricia Floyd brings McFadden's beautiful imagery and compelling characters together with a narration that is riveting drama. Floyd does not just read, she becomes a sister who hates her mentally challenged sibling, a mother whose addictions destroy her family, and a child blindsided by abandonment. Floyd can credibly vocalize male, female, young, old, and in between, all the while keeping the listener tied to this emotionally difficult work. P.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
