About this title

Synopsis:

This book takes you on a journey of nostalgic, maternal words of wisdom, through stories, quotes and poetry. It centers around a southern, black mother and her no nonsense method of parenting and enforcement of family values. It takes place in the mid-fifties and extends throughout the early nineties, following her ten children from youth through adulthood in Detroit, Michigan.

Simply Madear, focuses on the unconditional love of motherhood and the difficulties many mothers have in releasing their young. It is narrated, along with poetry, by author Beatrice Watson. Quotes of wisdom with warmth and occasional humor are delivered in the southern tone of Madear. The book is wonderfully enjoyable reading for the whole family

"SIMPLY MADEAR is a refreshing and universal story of a mother raising her children with faith, love and wisdom, told using the words of Madear and her daughter. "Why can't your baby sister go with you, what'cha gonna be doin she can't see?", is something that most of us with younger siblings have heard at some time in our lives. Madear follows with sage advice delivered in a voice that we all remember and recognize. We see a glimpse into the life of Madear as she shares her history and wisdom with her children. Ms. Watson has given us a look at two stories that are brilliantly intertwined to produce a lyrical and deeply moving memoir that resonates with the universal themes of family, faith and love. Her poetry throughout is not only a tribute to her mother, but to mothers everywhere. As I turned the pages, it brought back memories of my own mother and her words of wisdom. This book is a delight and deserves your time and, a few tears." - Barbara C. Fields, Region Librarian, Chicago Public Schools

"You will be able to experience laughter, joy and, a time of uplifting inspiration." - in foreword by Dr. Margaret T.G. Burroughs, Founder, Emeritus and Director of the DuSable Museum of African American History, Chicago
