Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts and her mother,
Lucimarian Roberts, encapsulate resilience, faith and
generations of joy in this slim and inspirational volume.
Eighty-seven-year-old Lucimarian reflects concisely on a
life buoyed by her deep love of music, as well as her
commitment to her faith and civic service. The same
musicality that steadied her as a young woman growing up in
the segregated South, then marrying her husband of 53 years
(who was a Tuskegee Airman), informs her descriptions of
life traveling all over the world before making a home that
was eventually imperiled by Hurricane Katrina.
biblical passages and lyrics from her favorite spirituals
add a devotional quality to the main narrative that is both
endearing and uplifting.
That the health challenges of both
Roberts women are not addressed until late in the book
underscores the main theme of the book: that victories
surmount despair. The stories from journalist Robin about
her mother add a sweet and conversational tone to the book.
