    For Dana, what should be the happiest day of her life becomes the day her world falls apart. Her daughter is born beautiful and healthy, but no one can help noticing the African-American traits in her appearance. Dana's husband, to her great shock and dismay, begins to worry that people will think she has had an affair. Now Dana has to track down the father she never knew and explore the possibility of African-American lineage in his family history.

    I really enjoyed this book. The ending was very good. I wish it would have continued a little further, but all in all it was a good read.

    Cris Burks won widespread acclaim for her engaging first novel, SilkyDreamGirl. Burks' second offering follows the life of a determined girl struggling toward adulthood in 1950s Chicago. The devastating discovery that "Daddy" is not her real father opens a great chasm in Neecey's world and leads to Neecey's abusive mother bringing a succession of no-good men into the home. Nevertheless, as she grows into a woman, the resilient Neecey strives to overcome despair and forge a new life for herself.

    C. Mitchell says: "It was alright!"
    "Enjoyed"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes it made me angry on the things they did, but I really enjoyed it. It takes all kinds of people to make this world, and all kinds of mothers are included in that group.

  • Getting to Happy

    Savannah has awakened to the fact that she's made too many concessions in her marriage. Bernadine has watched her megadivorce settlement dwindle. Robin has an all-American case of shopaholism. Gloria has taken happiness and security for granted. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time can change everything. All four are learning to heal past hurts and to reclaim their joy and their dreams; but they return to us full of spirit, sass, and faith in one another.

    Teddy says: "A Book About Middle Aged Women...."
    "DON'T DO IT AGAIN"
    Overall

    First let me say I love Terry McMillan. But to say the least, Terry please don't read any of your books again. Your calling is to write. Others are to read. I cannot get past the first chapter, because I cannot bear the tone of your voice. No ups or downs, running words together, and just plain flat. Next time please let someone else who is trained to read, read. All I can say is that was a wasted credit.
