Recommendation - Family, by J. California Cooper

Family, a novel
J. California Cooper
Copyright 1991; Doubleday
ISBN 0-385-41172-3


Before Cane River, Pearl's Secret, and Wind Done Gone there was 'Family' by J. California Cooper.

If you ever need to read a novel to get a sense of what our women Ancestors had to go through, this is it.

It's an incredible fictional narrative of a slave woman with some amazing surprises along the way. There's even something for the genealogists - keeping track of relatives and knowing the truth about them.

The backdrop of the story should be familiar to all. It's the depth and insights that Ms. Cooper brings to the table that makes this a 'Must Read'.
