Delores Phillips' heart-rending debut novel is set in 1950s Georgia where most of Rozelle Quinn's 10 children can pass as white. Her brightest child, Tangy Mae, however, has the darkest skin of them all, and she longs to continue her education. But Rozelle thinks it's time for 13-year-old Tangy Mae to follow in her own footsteps and earn money cleaning for whites and bedding men at the Farmhouse. Download and start listening now!

    " "Phillips writes with a no-nonsense elegance. . . . As a vision of African-American life, The Darkest Child is one of the harshest novels to arrive in many years. . . . [Phillips] buttresses those harsh episodes with a depth of characterization worthy of Chekhov, pitch-perfect dialogue, and a profound knowledge of the segregated South in the '50s." -The New Leader "

    " Very powerful book! I began reading it on Thursday, 20, 2012, and completed reading it on Friday 21, 2012. The characters in this book seem very real to me>their humaness reflected genuine raw emotion, courage and convictions. The protagonist or narrator, Tangy Mae, displayed tremendous strength and remarkable restraint considering all the violence and abuse she suffered and endured through out the novel; however, good always triumph over evil. "
