Book Description

“Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter,” takes place in the late 1960's in Selma, Alabama; where an interracial couple, Richard Adams and Marilyn Halston has encountered relentless ridicule, threats, and even beatings by white southern racists - all for the sake of love. The couple escaped that place and time by migrating to the West when they married – for Marilyn this was just the beginning of her tormented future.

Brittney Adams, their daughter and founder of Ebony Eyes, a home for troubled pregnant teens discovers an unspeakable secret her parents had concealed for over thirty years. Brittney’s persistent unraveling of the truth forces the family to come face to face with the demons from their past. Still distressed and afflicted - Brittney is faced with yet another challenge. A new resident, a sixteen year old pregnant teen, Angela, is being stalked by a mysterious man. As Brittney tries desperately to protect her mom and now Angela – a deadly accident takes place in the Adams’ home.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Stirring Portrayal of Struggle and Triumph April 20, 2011
On the surface, Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter by Michele L. Waters seemed like a tale of a husband and wife exhibiting the racial friction that's the best known secret in America. However, Waters contributed a piece of literature that is simultaneously deeper than the racial divide between whites and blacks, yet fueled by the simplicity of racism.

The depth which Waters gives her characters is amazing. They are more than complex; they are realistic. From the maturation seen in the main character Brittney to the development of her mother Marilyn, the characters grow on you and make you want to see the best from them.

The book's cover, although artistic, and title, although touching, doesn't show the full power of Michele L. Waters's novel. Once you tune into the way this story takes place, there is no way to finish this novel unaffected by the way Waters portrays the potential of the human condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps You Guessing November 7, 2010
Brittney Adams is the daughter of an interracial couple. She often wonders why her father is so abusive to her mother after he endured so much pain and rejection from his family when he married her.

Brittney is also the founder of Ebony Eyes, a home for troubled pregnant teens. Between caring for these teens and worrying about her mother, she seems to have her hands full. But when her mother reveals the family history and Angela, a resident, seems to have a few secrets of her own, Brittney's plate overflows.

As pieces of the story start to unfold and Brittney starts to uncover more and more, we learn you can never know a person's journey, no matter how close you are to them.

What starts off as a slow, predictable book on the life of an interracial young woman who grew up in an abusive home quickly turns into a fast paced novel that keeps you guessing until the end.

2.0 out of 5 stars Undeveloped and unrealstic May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first, I was excited about this book, The concept, the racist father with the mixed daughter and submissive wife, etc. appeared to be the great basis of a plot. I was intrigued until I discovered that the plot was not developed appropriately nor were the characters. The whole premise of the book was actually ridiculous. What black woman in America would marry a racist, southern, abusive police officer and remain in the relationship for 30+ years. Not one...

The plot of the book, in the middle, randomly jumps to an accidental shooting. Matthew is supposed to be the main character's boyfriend yet their intimacy and relationship is not developed. In the beginning they are just dating and somewhere in the middle he is sleeping over? Are they in a sexual relationship>?

This book just leaves too many questions unanswered and is not fulfilling. Not worth the $.99.

3.0 out of 5 stars engaging April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book such that it kept my interest along with the intriguing notion of what is going to happen next. Great story details, and when Jerome said are you ready for the details, literally. I braced myself for the details coming. This was a very nice and light read, that in my opinion had the happy ending it needed. I cant wait to further discuss with my bookclub about the mulatto daughter and the pain of this bi racial relationship

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read April 13, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book. It had a twist that was different from your average read. It's an easy fast read. I thought the author tried to cover many different topics in one book, but if you're looking for different, this is the book for you.

Good read but a little underdeveloped. Never really understood the title. Wish we knew more about the mother and father. How did they meet and fall in love?

Really enjoyed the storyline, written well. Good twist in the middle. Not much depth but easy to read. Not too predictable although I thought it would be. Great book for 99¢

I really enjoyed the book but it did make me angry that he blamed her for what he through. I think she suffered more than he did. Is there or will there be a part 2?
