Rob Mug shot“Listening to our Grandmothers is a beautiful book. Mary Ann Mhina has conducted and edited her five interviews in a way which allows the wisdom and  poignancy of her subjects to shine brightly forth. I found the book moving, challenging and humbling”

Mads image (web review)“This unusual and memorable collection of women’s stories was a humbling gift to receive.  I felt as though I were sitting with each of these women, in their kitchens, sipping tea, listening intently as they recalled their life stories.  Wonderful takes of real life from real women, which warm you up inside.”

Becky Picture“In Listening to Our Grandmothers” Mary Ann Mhina has compiled a collection of fascinating interviews with women of a  certain age – women whose voices are often not heard, but who deserve to be heard.  Coming from a range of backgrounds and having led very different lives, they all have something to say to women (and men) of a younger age about choices, resilience and leading a life of integrity.”

As a feminist, it’s also interesting to hear from other women, particularly those who have lived through a time of great change for women in general. An excellent read which I thoroughly recommend to all fans of social history.”
