Oct 7, 2009"Line of Serenity" I truly enjoyed reading Line of Serenity, not only because the author is my sister, but, because my family has been blessed beyond measure. Joyce has managed to capture our blessings, put them down on paper, and share them with the world! Mama and Daddy did a wonderful job in raising their seven children to love and respect not only themselves, but society in general. They would be proud of what Joyce has written. Can you imagine what the world would be like if every, single soul lived by the Golden Rule?! There would be peace on earth! Line of Serenity will help to dispel the negative, stereotypical beliefs associated with African-American families in the United States. Buy the book! Read the book! You won’t be disappointed. It will both warm, and make your soul smile!
Apr 25, 2009"Food for Thought, for the Soul and the Spirit - Line of Serenity" Line of Serenity offers a first hand look at what a loving family provides, nourishes, and establishes. Mrs. Joyce Field has complied a wonderful tribute to not only her family, but families of all races and sizes. Reading the first 15 pages, sets the stage and captures the attention of her audience, with laughter, dignity, perseverance and the love of what a family offers. I recommend this book to all ages, for their reading pleasures.
Mar 28, 2009"Line of Serenity" I loved this book because it brought back so many wonderful memories of my own childhood which was very similar to the author. The book was humorous in parts and gave the reader such insight into the lives of a solid African American family who loved and respected each other. It is timely for such a time as this when so many stereotypes are in print about African American families. It displayed a hard working set of parents who were determined to raise their children to become solid productive citizens and not rely on welfare programs for their success. Many other ethnic groups think African Americans are all poor, illiterate, lazy and without fathers or solid male role models. This book shows without a shadow of doubt how the majority of African American families survived in spite of the climate of racism in the U.S. It created a warm and proud feeling within me while reading and reminded me to be grateful all over again for the wonderful parents I had.... More > Growing up in the late 40's and 50's was truly a wonderful experience and I can only wish that the children of this day and age could be blessed to have the same experiences. You should encourage Mrs. Fields to write a sequel to this wonderful, uplifting book!< Less
Mar 25, 2009"Line of Serenity " What a wonderful trip down memory lane!! I enjoyed this book just as much as the author's other book, 'Mother's Dozen......'. Both of these books are very uplifting and leave you with a 'warm, fuzzy' feeling.
Mar 21, 2009"Line of serenity" Reading this book made me wish that I could peer into the past and know these people at these times. This is a blessing and a resource for the author's family. Bravo!
