Read in January, 2004

I picked up Jubilee at a time when I was horribly sick from the effects of toxic mold. Since toxic mold spits out toxins I became chemically sensitive. At the time I was living in a small room, no kitchen, no furniture, sleeping on the hardwood. I had nothing but a crock pot and four pieces of organic clothing fiercely wondering how I was going to survive in a toxic world. I was attracted to Jubilee and it saved me from collapsing into my own life. It is a courageous story of a Black American woman. I don't want to give it away but it is a must read for anyone wanting to be inspired and learn appreciation. I literally couldn't put it down. I carried it in my purse and read it at every opportunity. This is what literature is about.
