Being a three time mother and a four time grandmother, I thought I could never get anything out of this book, but I did. I loved the way her pregnancy reminded me of events in my own experience.

I was curious about the author and her issues with her mother, Alice Walker. The drama between them kept me interested and wondering. Also, her other love relationships and how they play into the story- including that of the father of the baby.

I found her voice to be quite defensive and maybe even a little dishonest. I wonder about her feminist nature- is this the typical young woman woman of the day? And I wonder how having her child has helped her grow into a loving mother?
