    1. I'll always want to know more about Sister Tharpe, but I don't know that any living soul could share more than this book. I've always wondered why Dylan gets a whole curated collection and Rosetta only recently gets a gravestone. I first learned of Rosetta about 15 years ago and quickly used her as a high school English class topic. What I found online and in liner notes was the most I could learn until I (finally) put this book at the front of my rotation. I'm not sure if the author plays guita [...]


    2. This is a wonderfully researched book about a musician whose huge influence has slipped beneath the radar today. In a book like this where so much was going on at the time with race relations and with music beginning to birth rock n roll, it's hard to give just enough context. Gayle Wald does that very well here, informing readers of necessary facts but not overloading you with historical trivia. I'm very glad I read it. I was moved by it, and the only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of [...]


    3. Part of 2016 reading challenge - category "read a biography"This was a really fascinating and thorough picture of Rosetta Tharpe. I'm surprised that she's still so relatively unknown in American culture, given how innovative, influential, and interesting she was.


    4. Great book because not only does it give you good information on Rosetta Tharpe trail-blazing ways but it tells another story about how a black woman never gave up on doing what was her natural calling.


    5. An enigma in her lifetime and an enigma still, notwithstanding this brilliantly researched and written biography by Gayle F Wald, a fitting testimony which I found hard to put down. Mike
