During the pre-industrial age, many black farmers barely existed on rural plantations in poverty stricken isolated communities. My concept of family life on a rural farm, extending from planting and harvesting seasons to city migration, is depicted through some devastating episodes. These episodes weaken family stability and weave the'selves in and out of the lives of black farmers. No one has dared to reveal the issues black women confronted on rural farms, but this book brings to focus some tragic images from social and moral perspectives. Attention is drawn to the fact that exchanging farm life for a better one in big cities is sometimes more hurtful than remaining on poor rural farms. It is with hope and pride that Blackberry Women will bring to focus the hardships and struggles one family endured. The devastating episodes revealed in the novel have lain dormant in the memory of African Americans far too long. The author hopes that the readers will reflect upon a few vivid incidents and consign them to historical fiction. It is with these thoughts that the author created Blackberry Women.
