Author Ana Barretoabout this book: For years I had some resentment towards my mother. I believed that she could have been a better role model for me and my siblings. Growing up in Brazil, women had no voice and no rights. Girls were groomed for marriage at an early age.

My original intent was to write a book about the lessons my mother never told me that women ought to know these days. I booked a writing vacation to begin to write the book. Four days before leaving, I got a message that my mother had been hit by a car in Rio de Janeiro while crossing the street. She needed two surgeries and wouldn't be able to live alone. So I canceled my vacation and went home to Brazil to care for her.

I spent ten days in Rio nursing my mother to health, closing her house and moving her into my sister's home. During the time, I began to understand my mother's wisdoms and what her life had been teaching me. My heart grew in love and compassion and this booked unfolded in Portuguese.

The wisdoms I discovered can be found in everyday life, just like the rice and beans I ate daily growing up in Brazil. It will help women be strong and go after their dreams without guilt or shame. It is a book to help women find harmony in their lives and be good role model for their daughters and others women who are learning by osmosis.
