Mama Left Me – Carol Ingram Moore’s book about one grandfamily’s trials and tribulations

Posted: January 6, 2017

Author and educator, Carol Ingram Moore, explores the thorny emotional and psychological terrain traveled by children being raised by their grandparents and other relatives.

Told from multiple points of view, the story centers on the Walker family: Pearl, a successful artist who abandons her daughter; Natalie, the daughter left in the care of her grandmother; Ellen, the retired schoolteacher charged with looking after Natalie; and others in the community who offer support.

Mama Left Me can be used as a resource for teachers, social workers, counselors, ministers, and anyone else called upon to shepherd young children through difficult issues of abandonment, loss, grief, or isolation.
