My Story, My Song

I received a copy of My Story, My Song by Lucimarian Roberts as told to Missy Buchanan with reflections by Robin Roberts from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
In this heartwarming memoir, Lucimarian Roberts, mother of Good Morning America’s coanchor Robin Roberts, tells how God has sustained her throughout life, guiding and encouraging her through people of all ages and races. In her late 80s, Mrs. Roberts still enjoys playing the piano and singing hymns and spirituals from her childhood. She credits hymns with helping her live faithfully through the Great Depression, segregation, and the loneliness and prejudice she experienced as the wife of a U.S. Air Force officer.
My Story, My Song brings together key moments of Lucimarian Roberts’ intriguing life with personal reflections from her daughter Robin. Their story will inspire and challenge you.
This book was different than I expected.  Lucimarian tells different things about her life.  They really aren't in chronological order.  Lucimarian is a strong woman that has many opportunities that other black women her age were not as fortunate to have.  She made the most of every opportunity she was given.  She passed this determination on to her children.
