Publisher's Summary

Childhood playmates in Mississippi, in the 1950s, grew up to find themselves on opposite sides of the racial conflagration, during the early days of integration. Years later, one of them, now a civil rights lawyer, returns to his boyhood home to confront unresolved issues from his complicated past. 

Memories That Bless and Burn is a poignant, heartrending story of loss, brokenness, guilt, and possible redemption, that invites comparison with the political divisiveness of the present day.

This book shows you what it was really like back then. It's hard for me to imagine. This is a very good book about history. Theo Holland does an excellent job narrating this book. If my review is any help will you please click on the helpful link below. Thank you

An excellent listen!

I just missed the South that Bob Hamblin writes of. I was born in Georgia 1972, and began school in Mississippi after integration was complete. His book helped me to understand that time more fully, plus it’s just a great read!
