One River, Two Oceans, and Raindrops in Between
My Journey Through Life, Love and RecoveryeBook - 2013
"One River, Two Oceans, and Raindrops In Between" is a memoir of one woman's journey through the raindrops of life, love, recovery. It is a story of an abiding friendship that crossed racial lines, an unbreakable bond that developed against all odds. Author Betty Ann Hoehn came from a wealthy white family in Memphis. Her black nanny, Corinne, came from the poor, black section of Memphis. Yet they came together in a place that knows no boundaries--the heart. Betty Ann grew up in Memphis in the 1960s, a decade of tremendous turmoil in the United States. Corinne came to work for her family in 1959 when Betty Ann was five years old. The two developed a friendship the moment Corinne lifted Betty Ann off the ground and sat her on the kitchen counter to tell her about the pearly gates of Heaven. From that point on an unbreakable bond was created that surpassed the turmoil of the times. Corinne became Betty Ann's spiritual teacher, comforter, and protector in body and in spirit. "One River, Two Oceans, and Raindrops in Between" not only addresses segregation among races, but segregation among mankind as a whole. It address the impact addiction has on families, the havoc it wreaks from one generation to the next. It addresses the impact of the loss of loved ones, as well as the mistake we too often make by not saying "I love you" or "thank you" to those we love. Readers will discover there is hope.
