Baby of the family book
Baby of the Family by Tina McElroy AnsaHere is another reason that Im glad to have finally discovered the wealth of books by black authors. I hate that this book was published in 1989 and it was 2011 before I discovered Tina McElroy Ansa.
Lena is a girl who was born with a caul. An elderly nurse explains to Lenas mother what she must do to keep Lenas gifts positive, but the mother regards such as nonsense and destroys the caul.
Lena is bothered by the ghosts she sees and doesnt share her experiences and fears with anyone.
Later, the book becomes a coming of age story, which some readers found to be a cop out, but I didnt find it disconcerting at all.
Im reading as much to study the craft of the author as well as their story, and I was entertained throughout and am amazed at how good it is for a debut novel. Her imagery is superb.
