Twelve Tribes of Hattie; Ayana Mathis

Story of Hattie who migrated to Philadelphia from Georgia in the early 1920’s told from her viewpoint and her twelve children throughout 60 years. Quite a depressing novel but well written and interesting as it is many short stories woven into one portrait of a black woman.

PJH Rating: ****
