Faith And The Good Thing by Charles Johnson

Faith Cross, a beautiful and purely innocent young black woman, is told by her dying mother to go and get herself a good thing. Thus begins an extraordinary pilgrims progress that takes Faith from the magic and mysticism of the rural South to the promises and perils of modern-day Chicago. It is an odyssey that propels Faith from the degradation of prostitution, drugs, and drink into a faceless middle-class reality, and finally into a searing tragedy that ironically leads to the discovery of the real Good Thing. National Book Award-winner Charles Johnsons first novel, originally published in 1974, puts the life-affirming soul of the African-American experience at the summit of American storytelling.
