Overview

The Revelations of My Mothers presents a powerful story of a remarkable lady who, at fourteen, took some extreme measures to escape a dreadful childhood. The story begins in the early 1900s in southern Alabama. The story centers round

In southern Alabama in the early twentieth century, fourteen-year-old Rene Carthwright, a resilient young lady with little formal education but the hope and dream that life would be better someplace else, decides to take some extreme measures to escape her dreadful childhood. After an unjustly brutal beating by her ex-con mother-with whom she has only recently been reunited-she decides to run away, leaving behind sad times and a life of abuse.

All alone with no specific destination, Rene walks to a nearby town and takes a train north, searching for a better life. Ending up in Youngstown, Ohio, Rene miraculously meets a white lady looking to hire a live-in domestic. As she journeys through life, Rene begins to champion the cause of improving the lives of the less fortunate. The Revelations of My Mothers follows her throughout her life, examining the influences of early childhood problems and the lack of a father figure as she grows up. Heartfelt and sincere, the saga of Rene Carthwright's life is a story full of mystery, tribulations, humor, and drama.
