This book was beautifully narated by a voice that can take you to another time, a time in the deep south in the depth of slavery, and forward to an era a jazz and soul music. The can feel the love for music of the authors as they take you on a journey of stuggles and triumphs with a family that evokes a strenth of love and pride. Robin Miles, brings the voices of these characters to life. The voice characterizations brings forth a mental visionary story you will enjoy, with a delivery that will make you too, sing and cry.
I loved this book! Excellant listen!

I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. The authors beautifully weave together the story of seven generations of women from slavery to modern day. The book is full of music, history, love, loss and accomplishment.

This is amazing. Colour and class in the post slavery American South. Well developed plot and characters. Well worth listening to!
This book was quite clever in the way in authors incorpoated the family's musical talent within the story line. I also liked the way the events of the family crossed over the time lines from slavery to the modern day.
The narration was good, as was the singing!, I watched the film of 'For Coloured Girls', the author's other book and it was very good, poetic almost, this is much the same. Very beautifully worded and poetic but still just an ordinary book, not overly arty (which i was at first concerned about).
There were a couple of surprising moments when the narrator made two errors which somehow made it to the final edit but that was funny more than annoying.
