A multigenerational masterpiece that spans decades. The trauma revealed early on nearly broke me, it was very difficult to read, but I continued, knowing all too well that horrific abuse happens to so many. I loved the perseverance of each and every North woman and all the supporting characters who were loving members of the Memphis community. And as a person raised in the south, reading the colloquial terms “all y’all” and “your daddy and ‘em” brought me back.
