    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    Suzn F says: "Hattie and her Family Tragically Flawed"
    "Reluctantly Disappointed"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, unfortunately not. I REALLY wanted to love this book, but came away disappointed. Story wasn't particularly interesting. And the writing style . . . seems like a little bit of editing would have gone a long way.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ayana Mathis again?

    Absolutely.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes written from Cassie's perspective as she struggles with mental illness.


    Could you see The Twelve Tribes of Hattie (Oprah's Book Club 2.0) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Absolutely.
