A Dramatized Family History

This story chronicles the lives of three generations of black women in the deep south in the early 1900s. It is based upon real people and real events revealed through interviews with the author's elder family members, several of whom ascended to 'Glory' shortly before this book was finished. Yet, with details long forgotten or taken to the grave, the author uses his research of the era and area along with poetic license to 'tell the story' of his ancestors. Mr. Holmes begins each chapter with a certain year. In order to refresh our memories, he provides a brief list of the current events, including the number of those lynched in Mississippi during that year. It was horrific and dangerous to be African American, poor and under educated, living in an environment ruled by legal racial segregation. Yet still, many African American families not only survived, but thrived to raise strong willed, ambitious, self-confident children with sound Christian values. The author's family is but one. Mr. Holmes skillfully tells the story of strong women who live amid danger, poverty, and domestic abuse. The story opens with two women and a man making a deal that will forever impact each of them. The choices these three make are in turn heart-wrenching and understandable. As the book progresses, Reginald Holmes' stories of romance, family relationships, heartbreak and survival in rural Mississippi becomes an interwoven tale of the experiences and triumphs each generation passes down for the next to build upon. This is a powerful tale of family and struggle; and picking up the pieces. Reginald Holmes puts you right smack in the middle of his family, and black history in general, with the characters southern dialect and the descriptive setting of every scene. Moreover, he adeptly interweaves within the dialogue common activities of the era.
