From the beginning the narrator was extremly difficult to listen to. I struggled thinking the book would pick up. Wrong. Avoid this book and anything read by this narrator.

Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard. Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. Her quest for knowledge transformed her.

clearly shows the divide between uneducated and educated. Also shows how you can rise above your surroundings and be better if you chose to do so. Tara fought a constant battle where had she been a weak willed person, she could have easily succumb to the ignorance around her. Although I was looking for a drama, this held my interest.

Scarred by poverty and life with a crackhead mother, Onika Lewis had a rough start. Still, thanks to her sharp mind, and hard work, she graduated with honors from a prestigious college. But her achievements weren't enough to earn her the elite status she craved. So she leveraged her gorgeous looks to become a rich man's trophy. And was eventually dumped for a younger model. Now Onika is unemployed, broke - and homeless.

As much a historical document as it is a novel, this 1946 winner of the Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award is the poignant and unblinkingly honest story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to live and raise her son by herself amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s. Originally published in 1946 and hailed by critics as a masterwork, The Street was Ann Petry’s first novel, a beloved best seller with more than a million copies in print. Its haunting tale still resonates today.

the book held my interest because of the narrator and sound. the story was fair as it focused on the main character, a black female, and her son. she had a lot of problems, social, other people, money that in the end overwhelmed her and made her succumb to all the negative forces around her. sad to say her young 8 year old son was the one that really suffered in the end. the book, though, was not as good as the end was sad.

Visiting from Chicago, 14-year-old Clement is unfamiliar with the social customs of the tiny town of Money. Striding into a general store, he offends the white store clerk by not placing his nickel in her hand. This seemingly innocuous act leads to a horrific murder and a conflict drawn along racial lines.

I thoroughly enjoyed Perfect Peace. I give it a 10. This book was very hard to finish. so much religion, I thought I was in church. it was well read but so little emphasis was put on the story and so much on the bible that I thought ibwas in sunday School.
