Betty Tucker grew up in Belle Glade, Florida, a town notorious for terrible violence and poverty. Her autobiography describes her experiences and struggles as a child laborer, as well as the heartbreaking and traumatic events that unfolded as she came of age, like being forced to give up twins for adoption. A victim of abuse and several rapes, Betty courageously—or perhaps instinctively—adapted the belief that she deserved better.
Although she spent much of her childhood enduring harsh abuse and seeing her loved ones stricken with disease, Betty went on to overcome her struggles and be an inspiration to many. Don’t Worry About The Mule Going Blind: Hazel’s Daughter also delves into Betty’s life after Belle Glade, Florida, when she moved to California, and began surmounting all the obstacles that had been placed in her path.
Betty Tucker does much more than simply share her life experiences with her readers. She also uses the dark times in her life to demonstrate how her life experiences have been woven into a single fabric. As she describes the journey to find her twins, Betty also embarks on the search for her own identity, one that refuses to be seen in the light of day without first visiting the darkest moments of her life.
The author has rated this book G (all ages), but the Independent Author Index believes a rating of PG (not necessarily suitable for children) may be more accurate since the book deals with issues of abuse and rape.
