"Even if you didn’t grow up on a dirt road, you can relate to the broken road of life. With humor, honesty, and eloquence, Romona Robinson shares how she navigated that road with her mother’s love as her compass. This book is a must-read for anyone who struggles with roadblocks of race, place, poverty, fear, or doubt—which is to say all of us. The way out was hard, but Romona shows us the way to reach your dreams, surpass them, then inspire others to reach theirs."
- Regina Brett
New York Times best-selling author of God Never Blinks
"Romona Robinson's story is beautiful in its presentation and compelling in its content. It is an urgent lesson in a global classroom. It teaches each of us that racism in our common culture in every aspect of our national life is almost incurable, and pessimism and despair are equally destructive. Romona’s story (which in my opinion has several chapters yet to be written) teaches us that preparation, excellence, integrity, faith, hope, and love have no substitutes. God is love and love is of God. Thanks, Romona, for offering this expression in your life and profession."
Rev. Otis Moss Jr.
Pastor Emeritus, Olivet Institutional Baptist Church
