    Delores Phillips' heart-rending debut novel is set in 1950s Georgia where most of Rozelle Quinn's 10 children can pass as white. Her brightest child, Tangy Mae, however, has the darkest skin of them all, and she longs to continue her education. But Rozelle thinks it's time for 13-year-old Tangy Mae to follow in her own footsteps and earn money "cleaning for whites" and bedding men at the "Farmhouse."

    What made the experience of listening to This Bitter Earth the most enjoyable?



    The story was interesting.
    However I wanted to know how Jude got involved with Lappy.How did Sho Nuff Clayton
    .come to an end ? Where did Bertie May go after turning her child over to Sarah and her sisters May and Ruby ?

    Did the unusual connection between Mercy and J.J have anthing to do with his attraction to Beth Ann ?
    Why was there a slap in the face given to Sugar by Shirley ? What was said between
    them ?

    Will there be a sequel ? All in all, I loved the story of Sugar Lacey. Good book . Good narration by Ms. Myra Lucretia Taylor


    What other book might you compare This Bitter Earth to and why?

    "Life Is Short But Wide" by Ms.J California Cooper


    Have you listened to any of Myra Lucretia Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you could take any character from This Bitter Earth out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Pearl . Because she brought it all together
