by Lydia Lewis Alexander, Marilyn Hill Harper, Otis Holloway Owens and Mildred Lucas Patterson
Four women met in 1954 at Talladega College (one of the country's forty historically black colleges) and began an enduring friendship that continues to sustain them more than forty years later. All with accomplished careers, two in long, joyful marriages, one divorced, one widowed, and each a mother (with six sons - no daughters - among them), their intimate letters discuss everything. EVERYTHING! By sharing their letters in a book, Lydia, Marilyn, Otis, and Mildred reassure us that we are all extraordinary, that we are all spiritual conquerors in our "ordinary" lives - with help from our friends.
