Publisher's Summary

The sister of acclaimed author Terry McMillan, national best-selling author Rosalyn McMillan crafts sweeping tales of African-American family life that evoke entire eras. In this book she captures the turbulence of the civil rights movement in Tennessee. When Anne Russell's father dies in a work accident, the family must fight to survive amid such volatile issues as labor strikes and racial tension. Anne is inspired by her feeling that the world is changing. But as time goes by, she learns a hard lesson: changing the world can sometimes be easier than changing the people you love most. As she did with The Flip Side of Sin, McMillan touches on the complex fabric that makes up an extended family. Narrator Caroline Clay provides a strong, confident voice for the determined Anne.

As good as her sister with a different flair.

I really enjoyed this audio once the momentum got going.Can't wait to hear more from her. Even though this was a long book (like I like it)I still wanted more.

Slow moving but steady listening

This audio book was a slow moving but steady listening treat. The author took time to build on the main characters, and then engaged the listener on a ride through the trials and tribulations experienced by those characters. However, at some point, the villain's character seemed unrealistic. The narrator was acceptable and kept the reader engaged. Recommend this audio book.
