This story grabbed from the first sentence and wouldn't let me go until I was finished. Even when I was not reading it, the characters and the story haunted me, and I found myself wondering about about the characters. Georgie became real to me as I read her story. I could hear her voice loud and clear, and once I'd finished this story, I was clamoring for more. Will Ms. Brown bless us with a continuation? I hope so!  Adrienne Thompson Author of Your Love Is King

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite If Oprah Winfrey reads Struggles of the Womenfolk by T.M. Brown, it will probably be made into a movie one day. I say this because I know Oprah feels strongly about a lot of things, and two of the things she feels most strongly about are the struggles of women and the struggles of black people who grew up in the particular time and era of the South after slavery and before the civil rights movement. I was ten years old in 1968 so I missed the worst of the post-civil war life depicted by T.M. Brown in Struggles of the Womenfolk, but I remember the atmosphere of hate and oppression. Struggles of the Womenfolk opens in 1944 and the author captures the tone of the time and era brilliantly. I’m going to go out on a limb here and compare Struggles of the Womenfolk to The Color Purple. Struggles of the Womenfolk worked better for me personally because it is less poetic and more realistic in my own humble opinion. T.M. Brown lets the characters tell their story and many of them are not poets, though their lives are the stuff that poetry is carved from. The dialect and dialogue are accurate. The depictions of black life at that time are accurate and direct. Struggles of the Womenfolk may be fated to become an American classic and for me it confirmed something I have always suspected: no matter how bad it is for the men, it is worse for the women. A great American novel.

Beautifully written. Easy to read with a good pace. I had to sit and read it in its entirety. I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Brown who told me Struggles of the Women Folk was inspired by stories she heard from her grandmother who lived in Virginia in the 1940's.

I thoroughly enjoyed Struggles of the Women Folk by TM Brown.  I did not want it to end.  I felt as if I was standing there with Georgie as she tried to help her friend, Sissy.  When Donnie disappoints her, I felt as though it was happening to a dear friend.  The ‘old wives tales’ from the south helped me identify with the circumstances surrounding Angel’s birth. Brown is a prolific writer who bravely uses dialect in instances and this is no easy feat.  This book gives a lot of food for thought.

Struggles of the Women Folk is a fascinating piece of social commentary, expertly brought to life by T. M. Brown. It follows the story of Georgie, a young black girl in the 1940s American South and her travails and challenges as she grows. Gripping and very emotional, I was with Georgie every step of her way, through loss, triumph and hardship. She stayed in my mind long after I had finished the book, and can only hope this is the first of many books by T.M. Brown. Highly recommended.
