    Overall

    This book was beautifully narated by a voice that can take you to another time, a time in the deep south in the depth of slavery, and forward to an era a jazz and soul music. The can feel the love for music of the authors as they take you on a journey of stuggles and triumphs with a family that evokes a strenth of love and pride. Robin Miles, brings the voices of these characters to life. The voice characterizations brings forth a mental visionary story you will enjoy, with a delivery that will make you too, sing and cry.
    I loved this book! Excellant listen!
