The Mother Wound by Amani Haydar

The Mother Wound by Amani Haydar

 

I devoured this memoir in a day because the writing was just so good. The Mother Wound by Amani Haydar takes us through life before, during and after the night that her father murdered her mother. Due to the nature of the content, this book is tough to read at times, but I can only imagine that this is nothing compared to how utterly unbearable it would have been to live through. I flew through this book because I wanted to know Amani’s mum, Salwar, and I wanted to see justice done. But of course, as Amani says throughout, the law and justice are not always the same thing. This book will break your heart and slowly piece it back together again.
