Becoming Auma Is Available on!

Becoming Auma is a story inspired by true events.

While many women have one or two close friends in their lives, Auma had been blessed with a circle of thirteen. Long ago, the girls had vowed to each other that when they became grandmothers, each would ask to be called "Auma", with affection and in reverence to all the "drama and trauma" that had transpired along the way. In this story of celebration and personal triumph, Auma shares her life experiences with her granddaughter, Emma. From within the pages of handwritten journals kept over her lifetime, her story unfolds.

Throughout the magic and mayhem of motherhood, Auma and her friends grow together, creating a unique sense of community during an age when separatism reigns. While coping with divorce, surviving a rare form of cancer and watching her son go to war in Iraq, Auma chronicles her life in the small town of Phillipstown, Maine. Graced and comforted by the support of her friends forever by her side, she maintains the strength not only to persevere during life’s most difficult challenges, but also to cherish and celebrate the simplicity and joys of each day. While many people may strive to "make lemonade from life’s lemons," Auma and friends take the same lemons of life, trade them in for limes, toss in some tequila, make margaritas and throw a party. This genuine sisterhood shapes Auma’s ordinary life into something extraordinary and makes hers a story worth telling. Auma shares what life has taught her and encourages the reader to be mindful of all those wonderful little moments that are too often taken for granted. Auma is special because she is just like you and me
