The remarkable life recounted in this awe inspiring and spiritual memoir begins in The Deep South, in Vaiden, Mississippi. The heroine unyeildingly instilled in her ten children the need to be "Somebody" In life. But the truth was; times were hard and in a place where poverty abounded and racism overwhelmed black people, this request was hard to fulfill. Katie was unpredictable, gifted, and resourceful in her position even after a devastating tragedy struck. Everyone has a past, so did Katie. But nothing can be undone or redone, so a richly deserved salute is now hers because she moved forward and overcame circumstances to leave a compelling legacy revered at the mention of her name. She loved and was ravished of her dignity when her lovers betrayed her faith in them. Yet, hers is a living, relevant story, passionate in its vivid depiction of life at its cruelest and its best. Every stage of Katie's journey is a testimony to the triumph of perseverance over the trials that confronted her. All of her triumphs are owed to the redemptive power of years of long, hard labor, and the Grace. of God.
