In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented. Hattie gives birth to nine more children whom she raises with grit and mettle and not an ounce of the tenderness they crave. She vows to prepare them for the calamitous difficulty they are sure to face in their later lives, to meet a world that will not love them, a world that will not be kind. Captured here in twelve luminous narrative threads, their lives tell the story of a mother's monumental courage and the journey of a nation

Ayana Mathis: The twelve tribes of Hattie ; Emily Raboteau: Searching for Zion : the quest for home in the African diaspora by Ayana Mathis( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the "astonishingly powerful" novel The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, Ayana Mathis writes with "uncommon narrative authority" and "extraordinary psychological precision" (New York Times). The book -- selected for Oprah's Book Club 2.0 -- follows 15-year-old Hattie, who flees Georgia during the Great Migration and settles in 20th century Philadelphia to a life of harrowing domestic adversity. The story unfolds as a searing portrait of one family's loss and heartbreak, and endurance in the face of agonizing grief. A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, Mathis "has a gift for imbuing her characters' stories with an epic dimension that recalls Toni Morrison's writing ... but her elastic voice is thoroughly her own -- both lyrical and unsparing, meditative and visceral" (New York Times)
