Book Nook: Passing the Baton of Light: Saving a Family Tree

In her autobiography, “Passing the Baton of Light: Saving a Family Tree,” former burlesque performer and actress Beverly J. Powers narrates her life starting from her youth, to working in Hollywood, to married life and raising her two sons, to working for God as a member of the clergy.

This book, which I was sent a copy to review, was a story of unconditional love, from a mother with a storied past and a son who ended up in prison on felony charges. Her book is designed to inspire mothers to never give up on their children, no matter what happens as they grow and mature. It was well-written and encouraging, honest and interesting.
