Dear Mother: Letters from the Heart (Hardcover)
This book empathizes with Muslim mothers nurturing their families within a faith framework. It canters her experience. Doubts and insecurities are gently replaced with understanding and support in the candid exchanges from one mother to another.
Dear Mother... brings together mothers of all ages and backgrounds in a compendium of fictional letters, written from the heart. Great challenges and responsibilities, hopes and disappointments are explored without apology. As one mother prepares for a new-born, another shares her experience of being a single parent. Why is a mother at the primary school gate feeling burnt out by 9 am and what advice does a grandmother pass down to her granddaughter? Whether she's sitting in the ante-natal clinic, on a bus or in the masjid, these letters reveal a variety of mothers' inner dialogue - one which is rarely heard in society.
