9780615182063: JOURNEYCAKES: Memories With My Antiguan Mama

Part of who we become in adulthood is owed to the parental guidance and care experienced as children. Whether the influence is from our biological parents or from other adults who assume the role, each person has memories of that journey. Monica Matthew relives these memories of growing up with her adopted mother in Antigua. She focuses particularly on love when she was either unaware of its existence, misinterpreted its lessons, or doubted its presence. Journeycakes allows readers to search for treasures in their own journey with parents or as a parent. It’s hard to read of Mama May without reflecting on your own Tanty, Mammy, or other strong maternal figure. The stories are filled with the richness of an Antiguan experience during the ’60s, ’70s and beyond, mingled with the sweet sounding vernacular, traditions and scenery of the island as the author looks back at Mama May’s actions with a mature understanding.
