Description
This is a memoir of one woman and her family spanning over four generations. "Little by Little" shares memories of love, strength, joy, and pride. The experiences shared in this book are taken from the author's seventy-nine years of life, her fifty-one years of marriage, over fifty years of parenting, and her thirty-six years of teaching. Several experiences were no doubt directly related to being an African American, or a coming from a Black family. Yet, most other experiences were universal in nature that will resonate with all readers. This is an unforgettable memoir filled with underlying themes of positivity, hope, gratitude, and faith. This story is filled with warmth, wit, and wisdom. The author has masterfully combined pieces of her life experiences just as a quilt maker joins pieces of fabric from the past to provide a link to the present and the future. There are stories from her childhood through her life of almost eighty years. The author's experiences and perspectives from growing up as a Black woman may provide you with new insights and cultural awareness. As you read the stories of family, may you feel the love and joy that the years provided. Certainly, there were challenges and some sorrow along the way, but the author has a way of looking for the positives in each situation. The book is one of personal stories, interspersed humor, and love.
