Publisher's Summary

Mama Didn't Raise This Woman is the story of a girl finding her way throughout various stages of her life with an emotionally and physically absent mother. 

In a time when the absentee-father epidemic served as the blame for society’s woes, Naja constantly wondered why she felt rejected, considering she was not among the popular "statistic". 

As she aged, Naja learned more about why her mother could not love her as she needed. Yet, she never resolved why she was required to do without the one person she believed could redeem her. 

After years of questioning her place in a world where her own mother rejected her, Naja learns that her testimony will help other motherless children navigate through life, knowing that they do indeed belong.

Wow! The simple complexities are astounding!

This is a very easy, engaging, and intriguing read. The author shares a truth that inspires and empowers, while also being vulnerable enough to accept faults and areas of growth. I highly encourage this novel to any young woman who still searches for the validation of a mother, but the who also understands that that validation will likely never come.

Speechless and Engaging

I really enjoyed this book. I laughed, I cried and even got upset if someone tried talking to me while I listened to it. I already have a list of people that I am absolutely going to be sharing this book with. Thank you for your transparency.

Love It All

I loved hearing the story read from the author herself. I felt like I was there with her in every step of her journey. I was able to completely understand and picture every scene. There are several lessons I feel that I can apply to my relationship with my mom, stepmom, sisters, friends and romantic relationships.This is a story that many people need to hear, specially women and girls.
