Review: Womenfolks: Growing Up Down South

User Review  - Denise Gilbert - Goodreads

I enjoyed how she wove the larger history of immigrants to the South with the earliest threads of her own family history. I was humbled by the strength of the women of her family. It was a very good read. Read full review
