About the Author

Judy Goldman is the award-winning author of seven books including Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap, named one of the best books of 2019 by Real Simple. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.


A gently told memoir of a cherished woman.

-- "Kirkus"

[Goldman] looks back on her life with a discerning eye that is able to appraise the dichotomy of her Southern upbringing. This act of remembering and then re-seeing brings a whiplash of honest realizations to the memoir's pages.... Child shows that truth--at least truth of a sort--can be found.

-- "SouthPark"

[A] fascinating memoir...

-- "The Charlotte Jewish News"

Child is brave and lyrically told, a hymn of praise to a woman Goldman adored.

-- "Charlotte Observer"

A rich memoir that is long overdue, Child examines a Jewish child's loving relationship with a Black woman in the segregated South.

-- "Foreword Reviews"

South-turned-North Carolinian Judy Goldman has essentially mastered the art of the memoir. This book unpacks a common Southern experience (that I won't give away here) with such poise and grace. It's also up for the Southern book award for nonfiction! Just read it and, if you like to, check out her other books.

--Zoe Yarborough, StyleBlueprint

[An] honest look at a complicated and important relationship.... That sense of investigation between writer and reader makes Child a remarkable achievement.

-- "North Carolina Literary Review"
