ThAfascinaae characters are well developed and the story has a compelling pace. I was well entertained.
Jessie Belle seems intent on learning things the hard way (ah, don't we all sometimes!), but learn she does. Her ancestors and the times they were from really got me wondering about my own ancestors and what their daily lives were like. But the line that's stuck with me is "Maybe she needed to start paying more attention to what was going on around her and less to what was going on inside her own head." Because learning about the past is all about appreciating the gift of this very moment. Jessie Belle gave me insight into both and I thank her for that.
Read Becoming Jessie Belle! You'll be glad you invited her into your life.
Mackinaw City, MI
For I like many other women had asked the question "how did it all begin?" And on a personal level I had asked who first held my helpless body in their two hands? I thought the answer would be my mother. I was wrong! Then I followed this question with who first held that person's helpless body ... and so on and so on. Well, Linda Hughes not only asked this "layered" question she answered it in "Becoming Jessie Belle"
In this book, Linda takes "Jessie Belle" back in time by tracing her Matrilineal line, a unique line that stretched through the ages. In fact, it appears that Linda used her own DNA profile to recreate the Matrilineal line of the main character, Georgia born Jessie Belle. This is a story which not only answers how did it all began but answers another question. It is possible for our past mothers to comfort us? prepare us for trouble? show the value of courage? guide us through our own life journey? love us?
I warn you! If you Read "Becoming Jessie Belle" and you may find yourself googling the "National Geographic Genographic" project and extracting saliva with a cotton-swab! I am!
