About the Author:

Yvonne S. Thornton, M.D., obtained her medical degree from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons with honors. She is director of the Perinatal Diagnostic Testing Center at Morristown, New Jersey, and an associate physician at Rockefeller University Hospital. She lives with her husband and two children in Teaneck, New Jersey.

From AudioFile:

This is the heartwarming and inspirational true story of a father, a ditchdigger by trade, who would have done anything humanly possible to help his six daughters succeed in life. He knew that, as women of color, their paths would be difficult, so he found a unique way of providing them with excellent educations. Fran Washington warms the heart with colorful storytelling. Her character transitions are flawless and bring each personality to life. Her portrayal of Donald, the devoted father, is especially vivid, charming the listener with his old-fashioned adages and insights. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
