Publisher's Summary

From white trash mill village girl to Senior Cinderella. In Alabama Blue, Toni K. Pacini shares her tumultuous journey. A girl raised up like an invasive weed in an Alabama cotton mill village where illiteracy, bigotry, religious fanaticism, and abuse were as commonplace as fried chicken on Sunday. From pillar to post, and coast to coast, she sought a dauntingly illusive refuge.
Toni fled a life predestined for sorrow from cold cradle to cold crypt, and she made it! Her life needed a major re-write, and in Alabama Blue, she rewrote the hopelessness into hope, the sorrow into joy, and left the past to rest, as she moved forward into a new tomorrow.

Listened to this one twice. Excellent!

I loved that Toni Pacini narrated this. I've heard better narrator but one can make many allowances in exchange for listening to the author's rendition. No one can quite fill the emotional toll like the author and in this case particularly. I would have enjoyed reading it but I can't imagine loving it equally. Some things are just better when read. A Mississippi girl myself, I love that drawl and it makes me miss my first home.
The story itself just flows. With all the biblibiographies that are told in flashbacks and back and forth time, the beginning- to- end was a welcome change. I feel a very fortunate person after listening to this memoir. I am not fond of people telling stories about how rough they had it just to say it was rough. This was my cup of tea. A rough story that was transcended, often by just hanging in there. Love it.
I was gifted this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

WOW! What a story!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely refer this to a friend. An emotionally riveting memoir for sure.


Have you listened to any of Toni K. Pacini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first experience listening to Ms Pacini narrate. I think it added so much to this book having her narrate it herself.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A Story of Survival!!
