ByL.D. Sargent

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A daughter chronicles her mother's life through poetry. The author also shares her thoughts about the devastation she feels with her mother having a terminal illness. Author, L.D. Sargent wrote a book to honor her mother Doris Banbury, who was diagnosed with Dementia in 2002. The book covers Doris' life from birth in New York, 1930, until her diagnosis. L.D. put her mother's life to poetry to represent a life that was colorful, eclectic and creative. Each poem symbolizes various events in Doris' life that she shared with L.D. Some poems rhyme, some are abstract, but each poem is meant to capture her mother's world. Preceeding each of the poems are Ghanan African symbols that L.D. used to represent their meaning. FRONT COVER: Author's mother and grandmother. BACK COVER: Author and her mother.
