    In Blues from Down Deep, Forster tells the story of Regina Pearson, a woman searching for the family she has never known. Unfortunately, her quest does not bring her the love and acceptance she expects. But just as the disappointment seems unbearable, Regina meets a man who is willing to show her what family is all about.

    Dee says: "Did not want it to end!"
    "The Best I have listened to so far! Don't pass up!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Blues from Down Deep again? Why?

    It reminded me of Black cultural views in the South. Skin color appears to be so important.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blues from Down Deep?

    I would have to say it was when Juliette was in the hospital and everyone was saying she had had an abortion. Rumors spread like wild fire. Family was the main instigators.


    What does Sharon Washington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excitement, the story made me feel like I was back at home in the Mississippi Delta.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When I read a synopsis of the story, I really wanted to hear the entire storyline. I lived in Hawaii and the author hit the nail right on the head when describing how Polynesian men treat their women. They do not view any work outside the home as relevant. Some are quite sexist.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a Great read, I love Gwynne Forster, can't wait to listen to another one of her books.
