About the Book

MOTHER, LOVE, DEATH: these three words when combined, are among the most compelling in the English language. Mother’s Milk is a moving human drama about a young minister who finds no way to cope with the death of his beloved mother. The response to her loss by this "prodigal son" sends his world crashing down around him, but his life’s journey takes a riveting look at some of the most puzzling mysteries of an "ordinary" society. He falls into a grief-induced antipathy which nearly kills him, destroying all hope for a productive life, until a most unlikely redeemer finds a way to him. Based on a true story, the reader is taken on a spectacular journey-weaving in and out of past and present moments to reveal the depth of familial love and his losses. Finally, we see his redemption through the yet-to-be fully explored powers of a "Mother’s Milk."
