Summary
In this book, Angelou details what brought her mother to send her away, and unearths the well of emotions she experienced long afterward as a result. For the first time, she reveals the triumphs and struggles of being the daughter of Vivian Baxter, an indomitable spirit whose petite size belied her larger-than-life presence, a presence absent during much of the author's early life. When her marriage began to crumble, Vivian famously sent three-year-old Maya and her older brother away from their California home to live with their grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. Their reunion a decade later began a story that has never before been told
Summary
In Mom & Me & Mom we learn of poet and author Maya Angelou’s reunion at age 13 with her mother, Vivian Baxter, in San Francisco. Though at first Angelou resented her mother for having left her with her grandmother, she gradually began to recognize Baxter's efforts to provide for her daughter and to understand how much she loved her. Angelou captures the complexity and the depth of their relationship, and its effects on her as a young woman. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
