Description


After his mother dies, Sugar Martin is sent to live with his gruff uncle Free, a crippled loner who makes his living fishing in a swamp in the Mississippi Delta in the early 1900s.

After his mother dies, Sugar Martin is sent to live with his gruff uncle Free, a crippled loner who makes his living fishing in a swamp in the Mississippi Delta in the early 1900s. As Sugar struggles to adjust to his new surroundings, the only bright spot in his life is watching the building of the new Sweet Kingdom Church, which will be adorned with a beautiful stained glass window his mother had scrimped and saved for.

One day Sugar discovers that the money for Mama's window is being spent for the construction of the church itself. Devastated but unwilling to give up on his mother's dream, Sugar finds affirmation and support where he least expects it.

With compelling characters and a rich sense of place, Mama's Window is ultimately a moving story of hope, dreams, and finding a place to call home.

With an afterword by Patricia McKissack.
