Why were these two beautiful baby girls abandoned? What happened to their mysterious mother and their biological father? What roadblocks did Bessie, a young African-American woman, run into when attempting to bring up these two marvelous white children as her own daughters, along with her own biological daughter?
For a while, no one seemed to care one way or the other, that is, until time had passed and the girls matured into their preteen years. When one of them displayed surprising athletic prowess, others became concerned.
Was it racial motivation or greed that suddenly brought the human roaches out of the woodwork in an attempt to snatch the girls away from Bessie?
Mom and her daughters faced steep odds in a rather bizarre court setting, but they managed to beat those odds, and the family continued to grow and thrive. This adorable and creative family eventually became darlings of the entire community. In time, the girls were referred to as the angels from the valley.
But in life, sometimes, before you can become an angel, you have to experience hell. Sometimes, even angels have to cry.
How does a family (or, for that matter, an entire community) react when hell raises its ugly head?
This is an easy read as you navigate through the many unexpected twists and turns, some of them enlightening and still others extremely unpleasant.
