    I read this when I was staying with my aunt in a very small town in Alabama Anniston She was recovering from a serious illness and needed some help It is a book that I had very little trouble reading from cover to cover All the stories were well written and helped to while away the time in a very small town I have to say that I found most of them on the depressing side hence the four and 12 instead of five stars I would like to see books about the African American experience that are on the positive end Yes history has not been kind to us overall but fiction should be about celebration as well as mourning and reflecting on the trials of lifeRating 4550 stars
