Becoming Auma is a book for every woman who has ever understood the power of friendship, the support of sisterhood, and the combined wisdom born of a circle of women. Melinda Josiah Geaumont's charming story is a mix of fiction, memoir, and the very best of Chicken Soup for the Soul. As Auma's story unfolds in journal entries read by her granddaughter, readers will be reminded of their own struggles and joys in raising a family, finding true love and finding themselves in the balance. Chock-full of humor, courage and hope, Becoming Auma is a reminder that most of us become our best selves only with a little help from our friends. -- Mary E.
