I had to stop listening a few times because the story was so sad. However, well worth the credit or price.
Talking about being mad is an understatement, had to read in intervals. The mother needed a swift beat down. This book only serves as an example the control of an abusive parent on their children. Disfunction in the family is overboard. Great writing by the author, just hope none of this situation ever happened!
Another remnant of slavery...mental traps that keep you caught and don't ever release the tension. This book was captivating at the onset, it got mellow dramatic and then somewhat predicable
. The anticipation for good news is what became the draw but it just wouldn't come. I kept hoping for happily ever after but the decay of life was too rampant that there wasn't any room for reprieve. The end just fell off the cliff and didn't even make a sound. It was the only point of peace in the whole book. If you read the book backwards it would not matter...the mood was the same through out. Awesome narration and well written. You will get hooked. Enjoy.
hold until you suffocate under anticipation of interest,this book evokes all of your emotions without mercy
I wished for a different ending but this book held me captive for 5 days. It still left me with unanswered questions but it was a great book.
One could say my tastes in books are nonsequators because I have no favorite author or genre. I hold over 300 books in my audible library
This story was hard at points and made me want to hate the mom but I found that I felt sorry for her more and more. The main character in this book made me jump for joy at the end and want more!
I found this book to hit home on either myself or some one I have come in contact with in different levels. Some parts, not all, related to myself and some others in my life.
The book had a decent/good plot but seemed to never become fully developed. There were way too many characters introduced in the book without expanding a great deal on all of their lives.
I would be willing to try another book written by this author. But I do like more character/plot development in my reading.
It was okay.
If the Darkest child was a movie there would be more time for character development which would end up a very good story. I could see Rozy (mom) being played by Vanessa Williams and Tangy Mae being played by Kee Kee Palmer
