Deep South – Deep North

About the Book

In Deep South – Deep North: A Family’s Journey, Lottie B. Scott tells both the heartbreaking and triumphant tale of her maturation into adulthood against a racially-charged, impoverished, yet fiercely loving backdrop in Longtown, South Carolina.

Scott traces her family history, peppered with familial violence and love alike. She describes her early childhood years of living amidst a sea of brothers, until little sisters finally arrived. Under the cloud of racial discrimination, difficult farm working conditions, and family tensions, Scott describes the unbreakable bonds of love that eventually emerged to forever bind her family members together.

As the passing years turn to decades, and family members move north, Scott reveals how these bonds of love become a transformative power, forever altering the lives of each member of her family.

What an awesome read!!!

This book should be a movie.

My family of three generations sat around our family room listening to the reading of the book for our native Longtown 86 year old mother and we couldn’t put it down.

The characters jumped off the pages, the stories were written with such passion, they were descriptive, the struggles gripped your heart, the pain made you tear up, other parts of the book brought deep laughter. The book is an easy read, it’s educational and uplifting too. Truly a must read in which you will not be disappointed.

Thanks to the Author Lottie B, Scott - She’s a genius!!!
