I thoroughly enjoyed the story. There were emotional moments throughout the story. very good listening experience that makes me want to obtain more books by Delores Phillips.
I read this book when it was first released and have shared it with many. This story seems like it could be a true story although I'm glad it's not....It is an awesome read and also an awesome audio. I really wish Delores Phillips would write another.
Loved it, very emotional. Although, thus story seemed unbelievable. sadly, there are people in the world that have experienced the same misfortunes and grew strength because of the dysfunctional family life.
I am loving Audible and I only get the best!
This was a flat story no real WOW moment for me. I listened for the Moment but nothing.
This is actually my second time with this story. I read the physical book a few years back, and was excited to see it here on Audible. The story was just as good as I remembered.
When Tangy first went to "The Farm House". I actually cried for her.
No, this was the 1st one, and I really enjoyed it
I would have to say the mother was. Simply because of all the stuff she did to her kids. I believe that she had some mental issues, but doubt they were as extreme as she made them out to be.
from start to finish I was entranced by this sad and realistic story, it took me back to my childhood where so many of the characters could have easily been real people from my life. This story gives a glimpse of the life of poor blacks from the south of this era. especially the torture endured by black women. fantastic!
This book is a disturbing story with none of the characters, except maybe the storyteller, having any real redemptive qualities. It details a severely dysfunctional family and how they came to be that way. The narrator gave provided a great performance but the tragic plot made me wish I had spent my credit on another book.
I probably wouldn't listen again but only because the story itself was difficult to read/listen to. The things the children had to suffer through were terrible! That being said, I really enjoyed Cherise's performance.
I haven't listened to anything else yet but I'd like to.
One of my favorites hands down! Awesome story, awesome performance. My only complaint is that "Tangy" is a very common name which is actually pronounced like "Tan-Gee". But the narrator kept pronouncing it Tangy, as if it were sour. Lol, other than that, I thought she did a spectacular job. She totally understood the character!
