This book touched me on such a deep level. As an African American woman with a multicultural family that I’m still learning about, going in Lizbeths journey with her resonated with me. What I enjoyed most is that she didn’t shy away from her families past. Although that would have been the easiest route. Family trauma is hard to repair and it’s not easy. What touched me even more was learning about the Author. I am so impressed with this book.
Both sides of my family have ties to the south. Both sides are multicultural. A lot of our history is lost and there are many questions that may never be answered. After reading this story I’m going to keep trying. Maybe I’m my discoveries I can bring some healing and understanding to my family as well.
