The Roux in the Gumbo

This is more than an ingredient in a recipe. Spanning 1865 to 1997, the book is my great-grandmother and grandmother’s life story, as told by her before she passed. It is accompanied by the memories of family members and friends. I have added just a dash of fiction to give it more flavor. Based in Louisiana, with all its flair and Southern culture, it describes the experiences throughout history, contributing to the shaping of the generations.
