The explosive novel that introduced the world to #1 New York Times bestselling author Terry McMillan.

Mildred Peacock, a spirited black woman living in the declining Michigan town of Point Haven is the tough, funny, feisty heroine of Mama , a survivor who’ll do anything to keep her family together. In Mildred’s world, men come and go as quickly as her paychecks, but her five children are her dream, her hope, and her future. Not since Alice Walker’s The Color Purple has a black woman’s story been portrayed with such rich power, honesty, and love.
