"A powerful, timely debut, The Turner House marks a major new contribution to the story of the American family. The Turners have lived on Yarrow Street for over fifty years. Their house has seen thirteen children grown and gone--and some returned; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit's East Side, and the loss of a father. The house still stands despite abandoned lots, an embattled city, and the inevitable shift outward to the suburbs. But now, as ailing matriarch Viola finds herself forced to leave her home and move in with her eldest son, the family discovers that the house is worth just a tenth of its mortgage. The Turner children are called home to decide its fate and to reckon with how each of their pasts haunts--and shapes--their family's future. Already praised by Ayana Mathis as "utterly moving" and "un-putdownable," The Turner House brings us a colorful, complicated brood full of love and pride, sacrifice and unlikely inheritances. It's a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams and futures, and the ways in which our families bring us home"--… (mais)

This was a really great family saga.

The Turner Family resides in Detroit, MI (my hometown) so that made it especially enjoyable for me. Angela Flournoy's writing is smooth and easy to love. She writes about the Detroit I caroused when I was a YA.

The story is told in multiple time-lines, something I have grown to really dislike. However, she glides you through the transitions( mid 1940's, present day) telling the story of Mom and Dad. The Tuner's eventually have 13 children. Cha-Cha and Lelah are the eldest and youngest of those children, and are the protagonists. The other kids come and go through out the story-line but it never gets overwhelming. Flournoy provides a family tree, just in case the need arises. ( )

fiction (family drama; African American family from Detroit). Read with I. Wilkerson's nonfiction the Warmth of Other Suns. Recommended by Superstar NPR Librarian Nancy Pearl herself. ( )

I loved this. I grew up in Detroit and have spent all of my life in the surrounding areas and so it was really nice to read a book set there. The siblings, especially Cha-cha are the same age as my parents. My grandparents migrated North as part of The Great Migration and so I see them in Francis and Viola's story as well. They came from Florida and the Carolina's but similar enough. Also the portrayals of addicts and addiction in general were handled in realistic but dignified way. This is just a rich, beautiful study of marriage, family and community. Gorgeously handled. ( )

It took weeks to complete this book and that might have negatively affected my appreciation of it. It's the story of a black family - 13 sibs and an elderly Mom - a few are highlighted and we learn their stories, but I never felt immersed in their lives. I look forward to Ms. Flournoy's next book as this showed a lot of potential but for me it was not fully realized. ( )

A good ol' family story. In this case the family has thirteen children and their offspring, the products of a couple originally from Arkansas who move to Detroit in an attempt to find work and a better life. The book focusses primarily on 3 of the siblings and their current life challenges, with flashbacks to the father and mother in the first year of their marriage. Of the three focal siblings, it is the oldest and his struggles with a haint (type of ghost), his role as eldest, and what to do with their family house that is the backbone of the story.
There's nothing spectacular about the story or the writing, but it is solid and interesting and "normal" without being cliche or typical. A good read with interesting characters (which drives the plot). ( )

That Flournoy’s main characters are black is central to this book, and yet her treatment of that essential fact is never essentializing. Flournoy gets at the universal through the patient observation of one family’s particulars. In this assured and memorable novel, she provides the feeling of knowing a family from the inside out, as we would wish to know our own.

The Negro offers a feather-bed resistance. That is, we let the probe enter, but it never comes out. It gets smothered under a lot of laughter and pleasantries.
—Zora Neale Hurston, Mules and Men
Out of the gray hills,
Of industrial barns, out of rain, out of bus ride,
West Virginia to Kiss My Ass, out of buried aunties,
Mothers hardening like pounded stumps, out of stumps,
Out of the bones' need to sharpen and the muscles' to stretch,
They Lion grow.
—Philip Levine, "They Feed They Liion"

The eldest six of Francis and Viola Turner's thirteen children claimed that the big room of the house on Yarrow Street was haunted for at least one night. A ghost—a haint, if you will—tried to pull Cha-Cha out of the big room's second-story window.
