Twelve Tribes of Hattie



The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis is the story of Hattie from 1925 to 1980 as she escapes Georgia and settles in Philadelphia seeking a better life for herself and her family. This is a compassionate portrait of a family hardened and scattered by circumstance, of a mother who vows  to raise her children to be prepared to live in a world of difficulty, a world that is unkind and unloving.   This is an emotional page turner that describes the glorious resilience of the human spirit! -Aurora
