Motherly wisdom from Maya Angelou. Embracing her readers as daughters, she shares the lessons she has learned over her long and full life.
It’s an unusual collection of anecdotes, essays, lectures and poems. Angelou writes with humility and humour, and comes across as a principled woman with a zest for living.
It’s an intimate book. Chapters are short and easy to dip into. Just the thing when you need solace or motherly advice. I felt privileged to be addressed as one of her ‘daughters’.
