I Know I've Been Changed by ReShonda Tate Billingsley

A successful television reporter discovers that family is more important than fame and fortune in this hilarious and heartwarming family drama from bestselling author ReShonda Tate Billingsley.

Raedella Rollins left the dusty town of Sweet Poke, Arkansas, on a Texas-bound bus with four mismatched suitcases, a newsroom job offer, and a promise to herself: never look back. Now, less than a decade later, she’s a top-rated talk show host, a celebrity news anchor, and fiancée to Houston’s star councilman. The future looks bright for Rae, and Sweet Poke is nothing more than a distant memory.

But now that she’s reached the top, her ragtag family comes knocking. Mama Tee, the grandmother who raised her, calls with unwelcome family updates; and Shondella, her jealous older sister, guilts her into sending money. To Rae, nothing could be worse than an unexpected reunion with her over-the-top relatives. But when her picture-perfect life turns out to be an illusion, Rae's family calls her back to Sweet Poke and to the life she left behind. Can Rae let go of the pain of her childhood and open her heart to the healing that only faith and family can provide?

This novel has a storyline similar to other novels of this type, yet it is different since each woman sees her situation through her eyes, her emotions, and her attitude and personality. In this storyline the protagonist has many lessons to absorb. One of several lessons is to address your past because until you do it will continue to return to you. Once you read to chapter three then the story picks up and you'll be hooked. You'll keep reading to find out what eventually occurs with the protagonist and the supporting "cast." Wonderful character development along with all the drama and excitement, and some perverse language keep the story moving. Worthwhile reading for the valuable lessons the protagonist learns, and we can extract from her life lessons for our own life as well.

This book touched me and Mama Tee was talking to me. All the sayings Mama Tee quoted I've heard them from my grandmother. I was taken by Mama Tee, because she was so strong and bold and no matter what, she took care of family. This book really made me remember that family is family.

Never judge a book by it's cover or Ebonics type title. I was very pleased with the main character, events and the style of writing. I even laughed out loud a few times. The characters were well defined and I was completely wrong about the ending. This was an EXCELLENT read! Bravo to the author!!!!!
