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.
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.
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!
