Daughter Denied by Alretha Thomas

Daughter Denied

Daughter Denied is a powerful and uplifting story, told through the eyes of 7-year-old Tina, a sensitive and precocious African-American girl, and her mother Earnestine, who’s trapped in a cycle of heroin addiction and co-dependency. This grim routine leaves Tina and her siblings trapped in a grueling cycle themselves; bouncing from one hole-in-the-wall to another, vacillating between faith and despair as Earnestine makes and breaks promise after promise to end her drug use and leave their abusive stepfather Brother Floyd. At her wits end, Earnestine takes Tina and her siblings down south to live with Aunt Veronica. Will the south become the much awaited promise land or just another broken promise?
