Reviewed by Tracey Quintin originally for Goodreads


Danielle Stewart remains my #1 and on my pedestal as she ALWAYS delivers an outstanding read and this read is 10+ stars! I could not put this book down, was captured from the cover on. WOW.

Betty's story takes us back to a time where unlikely friendships are born and love exists through courage, strength and determination to stand up for what is right during the turbulent civil rights times when discrimination was rampant. My eyes fill with tears as I write this because NO one should have to endure what the main characters in this story did. I laughed, I cried, I was happy, I was angry, I was sad, I was every emotion possible in reading this amazing story.

Danielle writes in such a skillfully mastered way that she delivers a brilliant historically woven read that captures your heart, breaks your heart and puts your heart back together again. You understand what makes the characters WHO they are. What an eye opener for me of events that truly happened back in those times.

I personally think everyone should read this story. If you lived it, it may help you heal. If you weren't aware, it will open your eyes towards the injustice that was done.

Bravo Danielle for tackling a very difficult subject with such finesse. What an absolute GEM of a read. I can only imagine the emotions that Danielle went through in writing this beautifully crafted work. Outstanding and can't wait for more!
