In the Land of Milk and Honey
In the Land of Milk and Honey | Joyce Carol Thomas
1 post | 1 read | 4 to read
I ease myself back in the window seat and breathe in as the train breathes out We're on our way! On our way to the Land of Milk and Honey Lemons as big as oranges, the cool Pacific Ocean, mountains that rise up beyond the outstretched bayCalifornia beckons as one girl makes her way west on a journey filled with excitement, hope, and the promise of a place where people from all paths come together and music fills the air. This is the true story of author Joyce Carol Thomas's trip from Oklahoma to California in 1948, when she moved there as a girl. During that time, many people went west, drawn by warmth and possibility, reflected in the people of all cultures and ethnicities who started a new life there. Coretta Scott King honoree Joyce Carol Thomas and Coretta Scott King Award winner Floyd Cooper capture the anticipation of a bright adventure and a world filled with freedom and opportunity.

#SongsOfSummer Day 25: The story invites the reader to run their hands through the pages, as the book begs to be read aloud in honeyed tongue laced with cinnamon and #StrawberryWine. At the core of the book is a huge dream waiting to be realized, the promise of a bountiful life as the train wheels “hiss, hiss, hiss” and a child leaves an old life behind, her heart filled with excitement.
