The World According to Fannie Davis

My Mother's Life in the Detroit Numbers

By Bridgett M. Davis
Narrated by: Bridgett M. Davis
Length: 10 hours 14 minutes

The World According to Fannie Davis

“I listened to this and it was read by the author herself. She did a fantastic job conveying her book and atmosphere. Fannie Davis was an amazing woman. She was smart, savvy and so generous. She loved her children and made sure that her daughter felt no food or housing insecurity despite the risks of her business running numbers. What the author did especially well was to incorporate history (African American migration, redlining neighborhoods, mortgage scams, history of Detroit, and the lottery) and how it effected her family. Bridgett Davis truly written a memoir about her mother that honors her legacy and does it justice.”

Every Step She Takes

“Genevieve enjoys living in Italy. She has a great boyfriend, a cozy home, and a job that fulfills her. One day, she arrives home to find that the door is unlocked and a parcel is on her table addressed to a name that she has not used in ten years. At that time, the name Lucy Callahan was all over the newspapers linked with a famous, world-known, married movie star. Genevieve soon learns that the movie star's wife left the gift. Every Step She Takes tells an exciting story entwined with likable, believable characters. This one is a perfect beach read. The narration was perfection.”
