Reviews - What do customers think about Come Sunday?
Charming and heartfelt May 15, 2005
Spunky LaTasha loves her Southern church, the ladies in their beautiful hats, where "Mommy's chocolatey-brown skin peeks through the white-lace gloves she likes to wear." Each page has a poem and a watercolor of part of the congregation's experience, from baptism to Sister Beverly, the visiting preacher, to the church supper of "collards and ham and honey-glazed yams, fried chicken and black-eyed peas, and pumpkin pie." This book shows the joys of belonging to a religious community.
