Friday 56 and Brothers (and me)

  • Friday, February 24, 2012

After an eternity of trying to keep her scalded skin from sticking to the bed, Mom finally saw Nana -- who, like most working class people, had no phone -- walk in.
- p. 56, Brothers (& Me) by Donna Britt  

Here's the summary from the author's website:
Donna Britt has always been surrounded by men-her father, three brothers, two husbands, three sons, countless friends. She learned to give to them at an early age. But after her beloved brother Darrell's senseless killing by police 30 years ago, she began giving more, unconsciously seeking to help other men the way she couldn't help Darrell. Brothers (& Me) navigates Britt's life through her relationships with men...

This is non-fiction and looks like a really heavy read, so I gotta be ready for this one. Oh, and I actually won this book over at Freda's Voice, the home of Friday 56! Thanks Freda! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
