Home Sweet Home

51ze3bfhtzl._sy400_.jpgAll Over But the Shoutin’ by Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg is a five-star memoir which melted my heart like butter on a warm biscuit.

Raised in poverty in rural Alabama, Rick recalls his life and rise to the pinnacle of his profession. Due in large part to his diligent effort and the influence of a long-suffering mother, the book bears witness to the grace, dignity, and love which fueled his passion for telling stories.

Bragg shares intimate stories about his family and gripping stories based on his impressive journalism career.

This is an inspirational book written in Bragg’s Alabama drawl which triggered memories of a state which I, having traveled there, find beautiful. This is also a story about a single mother who defied the odds by raising three sons on her own with unconditional love, the labor of her hands, and perseverance. It is an excellent story which I loved.
