Abstract:

In one lifetime we have many chances to get it right Grange Copeland, a deeply conflicted and struggling tenant farmer in the Deep South of the 1930s, leaves his family and everything he & rsquo;s ever known to find happiness and respect in the cold cities of the North. This misadventure, his & ldquo;second life, & rdquo; proves a dismal failure that sends him back where he came from to confront his now-grown-up son & rsquo;s disastrous relationships with his own family, including Grange & rsquo;s granddaughter, Ruth Copeland, a child that Grange grows to love. Love becomes the substance of his third and final life. He spends it in devotion to Ruth, teaching and protecting her & mdash;though the cost of doing so is almost more than he can bear. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s personal collection.
