A different josephine 18 Sept. 2014
By history buff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Everyone knows about the dazzling pre-WWII Josephine the Entertainer, with her exotic pets and banana skirt. This book tells us about another Josephine, the Josephine whose deep, if particular, commitment to an international movement for civil rights began in her own house. (She still had the exotic pets.) This book tells the complicated stories of Josephine and her adopted "rainbow tribe" of children with compassion. It's well written and engaging. I highly recommend it.

Good story - bad book 16 Jun. 2014
By Yvonne L. Lalanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was so repetitive and filled with psudo-psycological speculations to be almost unreadable. It was as if the author put together a number of shorter articles on the subject without editing. I was really sorry as it seems like an important story of an important time and a fascinating woman. I will have to look elsewhere for a better book.
