Although estranged from her mother until her teenage years, this book charts how the amazing Maya Angelou was inspired by her mother.
The book did contain a few events already told in her many volumes of autobiography but this did not hamper my enjoyment of the book because here we saw the role her mother had played in these events and the book had a different focus than her autobiographies - purely exploring the relationship between Maya and her mother - the legendary Vivian Baxter.
It made me think how much we are all influenced by our mothers.
I really enjoyed the book and could be read and enjoyed regardless of if you have read the autobiographies or not. I definitely recommend this book for all those interested in mother/daughter relationships, the civil rights movement and anyone else who wants to read a piece of intelligent but extremely readable writing
