many places, urban renewal meant displacement of the people who lived in the neighborhoods that were being destroyed to make way for the future Tomorrow s Bread is about urban renewal in Charlotte, NC, where an entire area was wiped out called Brooklyn The residents of Brooklyn were mostly black and poor but they had a community of friends and a pride in their area that had existed there since the end of the civil war This story is told from three viewpoints Loraylee who lives in a home with her mother, her uncle and her son She is in love with the white manager of the cafeteria she works at and he is the father of her son something that had to stay secret during this time Pastor Ebenezer Polk is the leader of a church that will be demolished with a graveyard that must be moved There is also a white viewpoint from the wife of one of the men on the planning board who are in charge of the demolition of Brooklyn She feels the wrongness but knows that there is little she can do With these three divergent voices, we learn about how urban renewal will affect the families of the people who have lived in Brooklyn for generations I especially enjoyed the life journey that Loraylee was on She worked full time, took care of her son and her senile mother but still tried to do the best she could for her neighbors and friends She knew that leaving Brooklyn would be difficult because generations had lived there and supported each other through the years This was a well written, well researched novel about a little known area of Charlotte, NC in the 1960s After I finished the book, I wanted information about it and found several interesting articles I love it when I enjoy a book and also learn about a part of history that I had no idea happened This is one of those books you will love these characters and ache with them as they leave their old lives behind and work to create new lives in areas very different from the life they ve always known.Thanks to the publisher for a
