Recognized as one of the world's toughest book critic, Kirkus gave "Driven by Faith" a glowing review. Read part of the review below:

"Rather than simply recount dry events, Robinson gives intimate, moving descriptions of her struggles and triumphs...the narrative sustains interest since the account is both sympathetic and unpredictable....Even though some describe the book as a faith journey, people of all beliefs, backgrounds, and religions may relate to the real life trials and tribulations.

Offers spiritual sustenance and tells the engaging life story of a barrier-breaking African- American composer.
