This book celebrates the Black woman's joy and achievements. And highlights how men love/like successful women. However, they resent them for their accomplishments. Josephine Leary, the protagonist, builds a great life for herself and her daughters. This is right off the heels of emancipation in Edenton, North Carolina. She's now a freed woman who is determined to build a legacy. Despite her successfulness her husband hates that she has to have money and knowledge. She buys property after property, even his barbershop, and their home without him. He voices his opinion about how it makes him look so that she buys properties without him. But the thing is, she was buying them before he came along, and now he wants her to stop or add him to her properties as though it's his dream or his money. Chileeee the audacity. They love a successful woman until you have to level up....I digress. She puts her oldest through college at Shaw University. The book highlights HBCU's and their humble beginnings. Josephine didn't get to accomplish being a real estate mogul due to her other roles, but self-taught herself to be a businesswoman that made good investments in the real estate market. Her husband raises his hand to strike Josephine, and she leaves. When she goes to file for divorce, this coward has the nerve to ask for his share of her properties, or if she gives him the barbershop, he won't come from her properties....Ughhhh. Relationships, love, education, freedom, and much more will keep you turning pages. Just read this one. #Book5of2023 #Bookworm #Whatsnext
