A collegiate Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Stacey Patton penned this moving memoir describing her tumultuous childhood growing up first in a state institution and then in a fractured foster family. Her hope is to shed new light on issues facing black families.

Growing up, Patton had very little sense of personal identity while living in the foster-care system. When she was adopted by a God-fearing and hard-working couple, she finally felt like she had a place in the world. But her life quickly descended into a nightmare when her new mother became increasingly domineering while her new father often acquiesced to his wife's blistering demands. Stacey would go on to pursue a Ph.D., but not before battling thoughts of suicide and even homicide. Download and start listening now!

    " I deeply enjoyed this book. It was very well written and the story had my emotions all over the place. It was a roller coaster but so worth it. This book was a great read. The relationship between slavery and abuse today was amazing. I had never thought the two were so similar. "

    " Really fascinating history. Basically describes how spanking became a central part of African American culture. Parents found spanking to be a way to keep white Americans from attacking their children for breaking rules of division. Well researched and handled. "

    " What a remarkable woman! I love how Stacey interagated historical fact with her own personal story. I learned that some ofthe mistakes that we make within our families are generational. It opened my eyes to child abuse within the African American community. "
