This book is about a girl that grew up on a plantation in Mississippi during the '50s and the '60s. Her folks were framers, and the main source of livelihood was working the land for someone else. Her father had the responsibility of being a father and mother to his children as she was only eighteen months old when her parents separated. Edna grew up fast, not having much time for childhood, and along the way, what she encountered and had to endure will amaze you that she overcame it all. At one point in her life, an unimaginable trauma happened to her so bad that she blocked it out of her memories for years. After getting over the pain of what happened to her, she was spurred to write about her life, all the good and the bad, leading up to that awful day in an eight-year-old girl's life; until this day, no one knows.
