Default Book Recommendation: Quilt of Souls

I just finished a wonderful memoir, Quilt of Souls, by Phyllis Lawson. When the author was a small child she was taken away from her home and family and sent to rural Alabama to live with her grandmother, who she didn't know. As they repaired an old family quilt with fabric from a scrap bag filled with pieces of fabric from clothing of family members who had died, the grandmother tells her the stories of her people. This memoir is brutal at times- remember this is rural Alabama in the 1950's and 60s- but it is a wonderful book.

Thank you for telling about this book. Sounds like one I would like to read. I just finished one called "Hope's Boy". It is alos about a child removed from his home and how he goes on the be a respected lawyer when he grows up.
