With much pain and agony, Isabel learns that not all fairy tales have happy endings. Ultimately, she develops the strength to celebrate herself and even overcome breast cancer on her nearly 100-year journey to becoming a true living legend.
About the Author:
As a native of Los Angeles, California, Joyce Burnett has always been interested in music, entertainment and fitness. She knew little, however, about the dynamic sounds and lifestyle of the Harlem Renaissance until she ran head on into Isabel Washington Powell. From the moment they met, Joyce was enthralled by the vivid pictures Belle painted of her life.
Joyce worked closely with Belle for almost ten years to record this incredible story. Belle was very pleased with the early draft of Adam’s Belle, but sadly, she passed away before her story was published.
Joyce holds degrees from Wesleyan University, Johns Hopkins, and American University.
