Summary

Best-selling author Beverly Jenkins makes the move to audiobook with this rich and moving story that introduces us to the beautiful Kansas town of Henry Adams, and the townspeople who make it unique.

Bernadine Brown is a woman with money to spend. Henry Adams is a town in desperate need of cash. But after Bernadine puts up the money, she has some ideas about how the town should be run. Will the townspeople be willing to shake up their comfortable lives to share the gift they’ve been given with others who really need it?

One of the few all Black towns founded after Reconstruction, over a century later Henry Adams was falling apart. So Mayor Trenton July took a chance and put his town up for sale on the internet. With a new owner in town, and the ex-mayor and his friends up in arms and doing everything they can to turn the deal on its head, will this be the death of Henry Adams...or its rebirth?

Excellent book and wonderful narration!

I loved the narrators use of different voices. It helped me discern between the many interesting characters in Ms. Bev’s wonderful story.

Just Enjoy!

It’s serious and humorous. Some of it’s for fun and some of it’s for real. There are things to learn and things to think about. A fictionalized Black community in the middle of almost nowhere, Kansas, is ready to welcome you home. If you allow it, it will inspire you!

I laughed and cried and gasped and clapped at this story. It drew me in and now I’m part of the Henry Adams family too. Great story.
