Description

The sister of acclaimed author Terry McMillan, national best-selling author Rosalyn McMillan crafts sweeping tales of African-American family life that evoke entire eras. In this book she captures the turbulence of the civil rights movement in Tennessee. When Anne Russell's father dies in a work accident, the family must fight to survive amid such volatile issues as labor strikes and racial tension. Anne is inspired by her feeling that the world is changing. But as time goes by, she learns a hard lesson: changing the world can sometimes be easier than changing the people you love most. As she did with The Flip Side of Sin, McMillan touches on the complex fabric that makes up an extended family. Narrator Caroline Clay provides a strong, confident voice for the determined Anne.

Professional reviews

"Caroline Clay's narration works admirably in McMillan's sprawling tale of an African-American family as its members face abuse, insanity, addictions, murder, and wealth. Clay's voice ages appropriately as Anne, the youngest daughter, goes from her teens through her forties. The elegantly spoken passages that chronicle the Civil Rights Movement and the history of Memphis add texture. Unfortunately, the same qualities that enliven the background information also emphasize the frequent and highly detailed sex scenes, making them seem more vulgar than they are in print. D.T.H.
