#GratefulHarvest - Porch: The Women of Brewster Place. Inner-city tenement housing. A dead-end street. A group of black women trying to hold on to life or at least a resemblance to ordinary living. Fighting to survive the crap that rolls downhill and lands in the laps of the poor and the disenfranchised and more often than not, women.👇🏽

Nute Strengthening against hard times, stifling times, men coming and men going and men trampling on hearts, sorrow, brokenness, emptiness, frustrations, faces of corruption, and deliberately maneuvered stagnation.
Snatching small bits of joy and laughter. Bravely fostering hope, perseverance, resiliency, strength and friendship in the face of nothingness.👇🏽
Nute When the effort of living diminishes strength, shatters the spirit and flattens dignity, they gather like sisters, like a village of wise women, like a tribe of healers. They gather in small rooms, at kitchen tables and on front porches to put back together that which has broken. To discuss, to debate, to rant, to talk through troubles and pass around vulnerabilities. To rebuild, renew and redirect their gaze to a brighter tomorrow.👇🏽 2y
Nute This book is well-done, every aspect…well-written, well-developed and well-told.
Highly Recommended!

This is another author gone-too-soon.
RIP Gloria Naylor.

Nute @Chelleo I really like this image as well. I was about to choose a still of Oprah Winfrey as Mattie Michael when I finally came across this one. It was a hands-down selection.🙂 2y

When I think of #warmth I think of food that warms the belly & the soul. Although it never gets truly cold here by regular standards, I like when I can cook warming foods & this Diana Henry cookbook is one of my favorites for winter.❄️💙❄️

Eggs Love this❄️🔥💙 2y

I have yet to read any of Valancourt's Xmas anthologies, but I'm intrigued. From the pub. site: "Seeking to capitalize on the success of...A Christmas Carol (1843), Victorian newspapers & magazines frequently featured ghost stories at Christmas time." I love the idea of reading the latest spooky tale in the #warmth of home, with a tea or coffee close by. #GratefulHarvest @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

Cathythoughts Sounds good ! And like a good Christmas present 👍🏻 2y
vivastory @Cathythoughts I agree, but one that you'd maybe want to gift a little early🎁 2y

LeahBergen I love Valancourt books! And I read some sort of Christmas ghost stories every year. 👌 2y
vivastory @LeahBergen Is there a particular Valancourt Xmas volume that you would recommend? 2y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 🔥 👏🏻📚 2y
LeahBergen I actually don‘t own any of the Valancourt Christmas volumes. My Christmas ghost stories are all in other books. 2y
vivastory @LeahBergen I see. Did you see this new anthology? I ordered it yesterday 2y
