Advance Praise for In the Shadow of the PeacockRita Mae Brown, author of Rubyfruit Jungle"I was moved no end by In the Shadow of hte Peacock. The sheer power of Yearwood's story makes you feel as if you've been privy to everyone's secrets and desires. [It] is an absorbing and evocative portrait of a mother and a daughter, caught in the shadows of each other's pain and the slow dance within which they escaped it. It is also a stunning, moving photograph, illustrating how strong love can and should be between friends as well as men and women. With a poet's compression, Yearwood's prose has the resonance and sound of guitar strings tightening, then being plucked: the echo, suspense and powe exuberate from one page to the next, carrying you through a myriad of emotions that she's so good at capturing."Terry McMillan, author of Momma"Both thoughtfully an stylishly, yearwok unfolds twenty-five years of Black urban history. That so much serious endeavor and accomplishment can e recorded in the shadow of that Peacock bar is both a tribute to the author and to the people she salutes."Carlyn See, author of Golden Days
