Ms. Pickett has written a heart-wrenching story with passion and caring that will touch readers’ hearts and affect them in an emotional way. I highly recommend this wonderful story to others.”

Simone A. Hawks, RAWSISTAZ

“I really enjoyed this book. I laughed and cried with the characters through their very emotional journey. The character development was excellent; the characters became real within my imagination. It would be wonderful if all family bonds could be as tight as the Walker family.”

T. Hood, Circle of Sistahs Book Club

“Adriene Pickett reveals what time and history have written in stone, the resilience of a Black family showing pride and endurance while dealing with tough circumstances, against incredible odds. A mother whose family is stolen from her, a brother whose faith in God and strong belief in family helps him survive separation and an uncertain future. It is a story of true values and true Black pride. An unforgettable book.”
