Now, however, the neighborhood is crumbling, Francis is gone, and their mortgage is underwater, leaving the Turners to decide the fate of their home.

10 The Becoming by Michelle Obama there are questions.

11. The matriarch: Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty cannot find questions but did not conduct an exhaustive search.


12 The color of law: a forgotten history of how our government segregated America I think there are questions but cannot open.

Portrait of the Thorntons--Donald and Tass--and their six daughters who, inspired by their father's unceasing determination and discipline, overcame economic hardship and racial and gender discrimination to achieve success as professionals: two doctors, a dentist, a lawyer, a nurse, and a court stenographer. Some strong language.
