Overview

Growing up in the still segregated South, Wanda early on had her outlook Colored Cold. The daughter of an unfaithful undertaker, she had to pass the house of Miss Kathleen, her father's mistress, on her way to school, whose children shouted taunts, even the tobacco-chewing toddler Tilly. When her Arkansas town enforced integration, white reporters came to her home to interview her mama, who had bravely kept her children in school. Mama spoke her mind in perfect English and didn't put up with people mistreating her family.

Mistreatment from Daddy was another matter. Neglect and callousness from this relationship continued the chill that froze Wanda's future relationships. Colored Cold gives a chilling account of poverty, abuse, and compounded consequences from poor choices. Although most of her wisdom came through difficult experiences, Wanda refused to succumb and strengthened her resolve. This revealing autobiography shares one woman's heartache from broken promises and painful relationships.

    Unbelievable story of abuse, neglect and secret closets! I loved

    Unbelievable story of abuse, neglect and secret closets! I loved this book! Once I picked it up, I could not put it down! It turned the page by itself! We all have closets and dead  rattling bones inside! I applaud the author for being brave enough to tell her own personal story of how she overcame a horrific past and was able to drop the negative baggage that did not belong to her! The abuse she endured from the SO-CALLED man of God ripped the rug from under my feet!  I could see myself in the room with her as this WOLF IN SHEEP CLOTHING LED HER INTO HIS OWN WORLD OF DECEPTION! BRAVO WANDA WOLFE FOR STANDING IN YOUR TRUTH! CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK!

    I purchased this book and could not put it down until I read it

    I purchased this book and could not put it down until I read it to the end. It was the best book I had read in a long time. The book made me laugh and it made me cry. I couldn't put it down. I recommend all young ladies 14 and up read this book. Buy one for your daughters, I did and she loved also. Buy one for your nieces and keep one on hand to give to young ladies that just need encouragement. Truly a must read, you won't regret it.
