What mother Never Told Me by Donna Hill is an exquisite novel. Parris McKay and her friends and relatives make this a psychological novel. Each page is a slow walk through the mind. Every mile I traveled deepened my belief that my inner self is very much a part of the outer world I call home. Unanswered Questions have a way of probing at the heart and mind. Without these answers we hunger for milk like a newborn cries for a mother's milk.
Parris McKay took a long journey. She began her trek from Rudell, Mississippi and ended up in Loire Valley, France. Then, back to the United States. Throughout the novel, I wondered whether Parris would ever become more than an arc of a circle. In the end, DONNA HILL has drawn the type of circle Parris McKay will live with for the rest of her life. Kimani Press Donna Hill
