I love this audiobook. I love the stories, and the familiarity with which Ms. Johnson-Coleman draws us in, as if we were her family. I can imagine being a child, as Aunt Lorraine told us the stories. Some funny, some sad, some will make you angry, some will make you think. All in all, a delightful time.

After returning to the cotton fields, tobacco barns,and humble dwelling places of her ancestral home in North Carolina, this woman learned what was misssing from the history books about African American culture. She introduces us to the kinfolks bringing her characters come to life bringing lessons about worship,courtships,politics,naming practices,and burial traditions.
I especially enjoyed the stories handed down from the days of slavery in her family.
