As the only surviving sibling of such a historically influential family, Christine King Farris presents a riveting retrospective of her life with her brother in Through It All. She provides a revelatory glimpse into Dr. King's childhood. She offers startling insights about her family's early years, including the brutal murder of their mother in church and the mysterious drowning of their youngest brother. King Farris offers a rare opportunity to learn more about the man behind the myth-as she describes, Martin Luther King was "no saint, ordained as such at birth. Instead, he was an average and ordinary man, called by a God, in whom he had deep and abiding faith, to perform extraordinary deeds." Through It All gracefully portrays a family who produced one of America's most internationally beloved, celebrated, and revered leaders of all time - the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
