Description - The Ditchdigger's Daughter by Yvonne S. Thornton

The modern-day classic - nominated for a Pulitzer Prize on its original publication - is now re-issued. From the tenements of East Harlem to the footlights of the Apollo Theatre to the halls of an Ivy League medical school, Dr Yvonne Thornton has written a family biography that is as moving as it is inspiring. The wisdom and guidance that gave the Thornton daughters the strength to keep striving and the remarkable ways they transcended the race and gender divides to fulfill their father's hopes is a true inspiration for all.
