"ABSORBING...COMPELLING...HIGHLY SATISFYING."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"TRULY ENGAGING...Campbell has a storyteller's ear for dialogue and the visual sense of painting a picture and a place....There's a steam that keeps the story moving as the characters, and later their children, wrestle through racial, personal and cultural crisis."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review
"REMARKABLE...POWERFUL."
--Time
"YOUR BLUES AIN'T LIKE MINE is rich, lush fiction set in rural Mississippi beginning in the mid-'50s. It is also a haunting reality flowing through Anywhere, U.S.A., in the '90s....There's love, rage and hatred, winning and losing, honor, abuse; in other words, humanity....Campbell now deserves recognition as the best of storytellers. Her writing sings."
--The Indianapolis News
"EXTRAORDINDARY."
--The Seattle Times
"A COMPELLING NARRATIVE...Campbell is a master when it comes to telling a story."

This book was real interesting to read. I wished the author put the year it was when it changed from 60s, 70s to even upper 80s. All the characters and the way they was saddened me mainly because it was like that back in time and still to this day people are like that for the most part. Just shows how much people can teach and carry on hate and judgement. How some people think because of their skin color, they are almighty but are not. The ending was not what I expected. I wasn't thinking something bad but the end shows up hope and love and not to just totally give up.
