Book Details Summary

Pakersfield, Georgia, 1958: Thirteen-year-old Tangy Mae Quinn is the sixth of ten fatherless siblings. She is the darkest-skinned among them and therefore the ugliest in her mother, Rozelle’s, estimation, but she’s also the brightest. Rozelle—beautiful, charismatic, and light-skinned—exercises a violent hold over her children. Fearing abandonment, she pulls them from school at the age of twelve and sends them to earn their keep for the household, whether in domestic service, in the fields, or at “the farmhouse” on the edge of town, where Rozelle beds local men for money.
But Tangy Mae has been selected to be part of the first integrated class at a nearby white high school. She has a chance to change her life, but can she break from Rozelle’s grasp without ruinous—even fatal—consequences?

    I just finished reading this book. I loved it, it really resonated with me! All the characters in this book were in search of some type of love that just seemed to elude them. The only thing that remained was pain, hurt and miscommunication! You would assume that Rosie was the antagonist, but you would be wrong, just like her kids, she learned her behavior somewhere!

    Too many times my heart broke for Tangy Mae and her sisters but this is the kind of pain some people live in everyday.

    By Cinemaphile917
    I enjoyed this read thoroughly. It provided an insight to post plantation life and had all the scandalized elements of a juicy family saga. The main character's ability to forgive seemed to be over the top and a tad unrealistic when it came to her sadistic mother, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the story.
  • Amazing

    By SheBreaksNews
    A wonderfully written story. Hope. Life. It all springs eternal and is profoundly expressed in 691 pages. My first ebook, not my last!
