Women Like Us: A Memoir
About this deal
After all, she is living the dream on a large farm near Bristol, and jets around the world promoting her multi million selling books. There was a lot of heart break in the book which was difficult to read but also a lot of talk about the love of her family and passions which was lovely. In the novel, “Breath, Eyes, Memory”, Danticat’s ways of expression of what it was like as a Haitian woman alongside with what was encountered, goes back to similarities in her epilogue, “Women Like Us”.

The author is very likeable and having read all of her books, following her social media posts and blog, I now feel that I have had a personal seat at her table and understand why she is able to produce such great emotional fiction. When the narrator’s mother says, “the family needs a nurse,” the words sound like something Danticat’s own mother could’ve said to her (Danticat 220).
Lindsey, as part of her Shimmy’n’Groove brand is holding a number of sessions as part of the Women Like Us festival. Sure Amanda had a lot of issues with her life and some major issues too but really a lot of people have a lot of ups and downs in their life. They both portray the dictatorial nature of the new government; the government that could not be opposed by the Haitians; the government that could not be questioned or condemned.

Reading such memoirs gave me a lot to think about but I came to realise that even though we humans are miles apart, our lives are interconnected through similar experiences and the things we feel and go through. As for Esther Belin, her work portrays the experience of a Native American living in urban Los Angeles. With everything I already stated, Amanda does disclose how she finally got into writing and how she made her dream of becoming an author come true.The first thing that struck me about the book was that it came across as extremely down to earth and I could totally see myself having a coffee and cake with this lady!

Women Like Us: A Memoir - Amanda Prowse
Daisy Harrop has always felt like she exists in the background, and since her mother stopped getting out of bed, her life has come to a complete standstill.Yoga practice is more than just the postures; we will also focus on breathing and relaxation, and their benefits to the body, mind and soul. But I found as she approached her weight loss journey, she seemed very different from the Amanda we met previously in the book. I loved how honest she was from the very start about who she was and I loved that there was humour all the way through.
