A Letter from Mom by Mimi Thelma James

In A Letter from Mom, a mother - the author - writes to her son and daughter. She addresses her daughter Jan in the beginning and tries to capture in words, what Jan was like as a child and some of the fond memories she holds so dear. Next she addresses her son Roy, and tries to explain to him how she chose to give him up, and how letting go was the hardest thing she ever did.

This book is very short but it carries so much raw emotion within the pages. It is touching, heartbreaking, inspirational and uplifting all at once. I found it to be written with an honest and open heart, as the author bares her soul to her children.

I was deeply moved by this book, and by the courage that the author showed in not just sharing her deepest sense of self with her children, but through this book, the world also.

I loved it.
