This book is fun, exciting, and has many interesting characters. Each chapter is a new story and really highlights the life of african americans and segregation during the time period. Overall we really enjoyed this book!

This is truly the sweetest book about the most lovely family working hard to pursue their dreams to get their own farm despite race and financial status being a big problem for them.

Two things I loved the most about this book are the focus on good manners and forgiveness toward those that aren’t nice to the family. And I love that it’s on audible!!

Disappointed in the Language Used

The story itself is a simple yet interesting one. It shows the struggles of African Americans during the time period in the USA as well as how to be kind to all no matter what. However, This book contains the N word which I felt was inappropriate for a ‘good & beautiful’ book. Another word could have been used in its place and still retained the emotion and meaning. I wish a disclaimer had been put on the information that the book contained this word.
