"Family" shared insights into the institution of slavery. The bitterness a race suffered, but yet the courage of that race to survive. "Family" is about a mother, who did not want her children to live as she was forced to live or to endure the misery forced upon them, but in which they had no control. "Family" is moving. Indeed, some of the events will bring tears to your eyes. "Family" is about survival.
Ms. Cooper is an exceptional author and has truly captured the essence of what it is to be a 'family.'
Sometimes through pain one kind truly triumph in the midst of a storm. The pain can be overwhelming but yet it can be trampled upon valiantly.
