Hope is a little girl who looks forward to her annual visit with her beloved aunt. When a stranger disturbs Hope by commenting that she must be ‘mixed’ racially, Hope is confused and shamed. Then her aunt tells her the story of how she was given the name Hope. She learns of the great dignity of her great-grandparents and grandparents on both sides of her family, of the work they did to better the world, and of her parents’ hope for an even better future for themselves and their daughter. She is, says her aunt, generations of faith ‘mixed’ with lots of love, which is hope!
This is an autobiographical picture book showing the unfolding of love and happiness as people reach out to one another. When young Patricia makes friends with two neighbor children, they appear to have little in common: Winston and Stewart are boys, African-American and Baptist, and Patricia, who is a white girl, comes from an Eastern Church tradition. But after Patricia’s beloved babuska dies, the boys’ grandmother, Miss Eula May, takes Patricia into her heart. In their affection for Miss Eula, her three “baby dears” hatch a plan to buy her an Easter bonnet. But a series of events lead them to confronting their fears and other’s hatred, sharing the folk art tradition of Patricia’s family, and bringing joy to a Jewish man—all before they acquire the hat. This story clearly shows the process of giving dignity and respect within the family and community circles.
