Publisher's Summary

Good Morning America viewers have come to know and love Lucimarian Roberts, the 88-year-old mother of coanchor Robin Roberts. On the day after Hurricane Katrina blew through the Gulf Coast, they watched Robin, standing amid the remnants of her hometown, recount the desperate search for her mother - and her return to safety.

Robin was not surprised to learn that even as the winds howled and floodwaters rose, Lucimarian sang hymns. Today, Lucimarian Roberts can recite lyrics to hundreds of hymns and spirituals. She credits hymns for helping her, a black woman born in 1924, live faithfully through the turbulent times of the Great Depression, segregation, and racial prejudice even as the wife of a U.S. Air Force officer.

This memoir shares pivotal moments in Lucimarian Roberts’ intriguing life, revealing how God has sustained her with strength and hope. Daughter Robin reflects at the close of each chapter, with her own voice, on her remarkable mother’s character and influence.

Special features include five musical tracks, all played and sung by Lucimarian Roberts. Among these tracks is the hymn "When We All Get to Heaven", performed by three of the Roberts women: Dorothy, Robin, and Lucimarian. PDF material includes photos of the Roberts family throughout the years.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

book about faith

I bought the book because I like Robin Roberts but didn't read what the book was about. I assumed it was more to do with the kids growing up. I'm not religious so I had no interest in listening to hymns being sung. That being said I'm sure that is what got them through the times of segregation with such a possessive attitude.
It is a positive book so if you are of a religious faith and like listening to hymns this book is for you.

Very Inspirational

This was a very "nice" book. I understand the logic behind it totally-however, I thought it was a book about Robin and her Mom. It more centered around her Moms story, which made good sense. It was a very inspirational story of someone who learned at an early age to work hard, be grateful and you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you and a good family. Loved the hymns at the end.
Not quite what I was looking for, but I did enjoy it.
