I wanted to die... Sometimes Id sit and try to will myself to death so I could fade away. I truly believed no one in this world loved me because I was not lovable, and I agreed with my mother that I should never have been born. Mary Eliza Reese Jr.,MoreI wanted to die...

Sometimes Id sit and try to will myself to death so I could fade away. I truly believed no one in this world loved me because I was not lovable, and I agreed with my mother that I should never have been born. Mary Eliza Reese Jr., also known as Little Mary, was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and reared in Los Angeles, California. As an African American living during the racial tension of the 50s and 60s, Little Mary found her light-colored skin to be a major issue, but that wasnt her only problem.

Little Marys mother, Big Mary, caused her to endure numerous life-threatening situations due to her drinking problem. Big Mary was co-owner of a well-known and respected mortuary in the African American community in Los Angeles. Little Marys childhood experiences, and the mental and physical abuse she grudgingly faced each day, led her to believe that her only true friends were the dead people in her mothers mortuary. Little Marys story tells what really happens behind the embalming room doors—the light and dark side of life.

In her incredible and extraordinary memoir, A Soul Survivor, author Mary Ross Smith explores the depths of human emotions, both real and imagined. That any of us reach adulthood in one piece, emotionally or physically, is a miracle of no small proportion. That any of us reach adulthood to contribute back to society and become highly respected in the community is truly a gift of time and place. Little Marys story is one of heartbreak and anguish, but one that ends in triumph. It is an enlightening and revealing peek into the unexpected and is, in the end, a story of A Soul Survivor.
