A Single Mother's Journey to Peace and Happiness is a tale of self-discovery. It is the story of an inspiring woman and how, through belief and perseverance, she turned trials, trepidation, and tribulations into triumph. It is a story about finding solace with family in a world that seems cold. It is a story about teetering on the edge, and in the midst of fear, doubt and uncertainty, trusting God to pull you through to the other side. It is a story about the truly important things in life, about family, friends and faith.

 

 

"It is beautiful and brutally honest. The story is shared in a positive and spiritual manner that embraces the reader in such a way that even the painful moments are bearable. I love the title and concept of finding ones' voice and rediscovering self. The Hopi Indians have a saying: “Don't be afraid to cry, for it frees the mind of sorrowful thoughts.” Ngadi let the tears flow in this story.

-Mahasin D. Shamsid-Deen

"This is powerful and a great gift. It is honest and very transparent. People may peep through this window into the author's life.

-Toyin Fajimolu

"A Single Mother's Journey is a beautiful account of courage and longing. The story takes you through life's familiar travels. You weather the storms with this determined mother, share her tears, and celebrate her triumphs. A must read!

Ngadi,
This book is about the life of a woman who could be any woman. It is the life of complication and commitment. It is a drama that is distilled by everyday life. It is a raw course but ever so
gentle to touch. I read it till the end because I wanted to cry. But shuddered when it gave me hope. And now I wander if I really need to believe. Do I indeed dare to believe. Through this dense fog of what could have become ordinary. Or just life. Has burst something extraordinary. Or just inspiration. And inspired I was.
I remain.
Your servant,
malik
