Read this book a few years ago, was excited when I heard it was going to be made into a T V movie. The actors and actress pulled you in from the beginning of the story. The movie invoked emotions from angry to laughter I found it hard to keep the tears and bay in the end I found my- self crying. At times I just wanted to slap the father, but by the same token I could see he believed in his heart he as doing the correct things for his family.
The lessons learned in this movie are truly blood is thicker than water, ad when life get rough love and pray will pull a family together only making them a stronger unit.
I hope Regina King will choose another novel to turn into a made for T V movie she brought the essence of the African American family.
