Home - Kindle ebook by Donovin Freeman

Home is based on a true story. My grandfather was a numbers runner for the notorious gangster Bumpy Johnson. Bumpy's life story was made into the movie "Hoodlum" starring Laurence Fishburne, Vanessa Williams, Tim Roth and Andy Garcia. My grandfather and his wife were just not responsible enough at their age to raise four children so with the threat of them being put up for adoption their grandmother brings them down south and raises them herself. Home is a story about the collateral damage that can be done by the drug trade. Fortunately, my mother and her siblings were rescued from that environment and have lived very good decent lives despite very rough beginnings. It's a story that will make you laugh, cry, fill with rage, and cheer at the top of your lungs.

This book is about family drama. Family who was abandon by their biological mother and who are about to meet for the first time in their adult years. Lots of drama and a very good read.
