I've always been a fan of 'Cabin in the Sky' and others, but this book is sooooo good! The poetry and descriptions in the language... I also appreciate the accuracy of the sentence structure used. Can't wait to read part 2!

Haunting portrait of a spurned child surviving by her wits in the inner-city ghettos of Philadelphia, and her ensuing rise to fame intoning blues in the speakeasies of Taft-era Harlem. Ms. Waters tells her own story her own way --with eloquent, plain-spoken candor. Vivid characterizations --I could not put this book down.

I read this book when I was in my 20's and just read it again recently. I have a lot of respect for this wonderful woman who was able to overcome so many obstacles to reach her goals.

Great book about Ethel Waters and her life. I have always loved her in movies.
Would recommend it to anyone.
