Where Blood Is Born
Paperback: 432 pages
This astonishing novel takes us on a journey along the river
of one family's history, carving a course across two centuries
and three continents, from ancient Africa into today's America.
Here, through the lives of Mother Africa's many daughters, we
come to understand the real meaning of roots: the captive Proud
Mary, who has been savagely punished for refusing to relinquish
her child to slavery; Earlene, who witnesses her father's murder
at the hands of the Ku Klux Klan; Big Momma, a modern-day
matriarch who can make a woman of a girl; proud and sassy
Cinnamon Brown, whose wild abandon hides a bitter loss; and
smart, ambitious Alma, who is torn between the love of a man and
the song of her soul.
