I was captivated by this book and plowed through it in a few days. Dmae's writing is engaging and pulls the reader in to her world. Her portrayal of her family, particularly her mother, is raw and real. As a mother of 2 mixed-race children, it left me wondering if my children felt alienated and alone at times. However, this is not so much an analysis of the mixed-race culture, but more of a memoir detailing Dmae's cathartic jouney, as she lets us into her world to share in her search for her identity and acceptance of her family, imperfections and all.
I especially enjoyed the author, Dmae Roberts, style of writing. She is a brilliant and gifted writer. The book was interesting, emotional and entertaining all at the same time. The story is thought provoking and fascinating. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. She writes about the struggles she and her family were challenged with growing up as a mixed-raced family. Her story of her Mother, Father, family and friends testify as to how this brave this author was growing up. Fascinating! I highly recommend this book. It is a Must-Read!
identity, which presents its own complexity, is Roberts' narrative of living in a small rural town with zero diversity. Roberts'
writing is filled with emotion and heart as she sifts through her experiences to gain an understanding of her family -- particularly
her mother whom she had distanced then cared for at the end of her life. A book that takes the reader inside a mixed-race family but also
gives everyone something to connect to through Roberts' stirring prose.
