I appreciate the story of Mrs. Lear Green tremendously. To read a story about a woman who has lived through many decades and experienced the evolution of the world, is liberating. I especially loved reading through the relationship between Lear, Symoné and Mary, three generations of black women who love and support each other fully and gently.
