BLIND FAITH The Miraculous Journey of Lula Hardaway, Stevie Wonder's Mother

by | Read by Viola Davis

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2002

Viola Davis embodies the spunk and spirit of Lula Hardaway in this amazing hard-luck biography of Stevie Wonder's mother. Davis's voice reflects Hardaway's toughness and determination to build a better life for her boys than she experienced growing up in a sharecropper family while at the same time capturing her fierce love and gentle devotion. While the first half of the book focuses on Lula's life, the second half is devoted almost exclusively to the development of Stevie Wonder from a small, blind baby to a superstar; the other kids and Lula's life really take a backseat, an unfortunate occurrence given the drama inherent in Lula's amazing perseverance. The story and perform-ance also provide an insider's look at Detroit as Motown Records launched many of its stars. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
