A Journey of Love, Faith, Strength and Determination, a literary work that is both autobiographical and biographical in nature. It recounts the Jackson family’s ancestry to the ninth generation and the lives of fourteen siblings raised in a two-parent household. It relives the time from a life of farming that never yielded any financial benefits to a move to the North. The move was in pursuit of a better life and the fulfillment of a Mother’s dream for her children. The siblings never dwelled on the thought that they deserved better, just believed they could do better. And better they did!
