Mother and daughter speak their minds about misplaced love...
"On the most beautiful spring day that God gave us all year, I came to find out some awful news about my daughter. If it wasn't so early in the day, I'd pop open a beer. But it's not ladylike to have alcohol before sundown. My coffee was cold, but I drank it anyway. With each sip, I mourned the grandchildren that I would never have."
"My cell phone rang with Beyoncé's 'Irreplaceable' ringtone. One glance at the Caller ID confirmed what I already knew. My husband's name lit up across the screen. I silenced the ringer, and put the phone back in my purse. If I could waive a magic wand over my life, I would never talk to him again."
Naomi's life has been fueled by her appetite for ambition. She has a master's degree, a great corporate job in downtown Detroit, a shiny silver Jaguar, an immaculate suburban mansion and a best friend worth millions. But Naomi's calculated success has distanced her from her mother, Gloria, a churchgoing homemaker known for her mouthwatering soul food recipes and down-to-earth wisdom.
Naomi is devastated when her husband's secret is revealed. Ugly truths from the past are forced into the spotlight, and Naomi must turn to Gloria for help. The crisis is magnified when one woman's life is threatened, and they must make peace with each other to find happiness together.
My Mama Told Me reveals the fragile and beautiful relationship between mother and daughter. Author Sade Morrison's novel blends soul, passion and a healthy helping of laughter. Each woman has their say in this heart touching story.
