About The Book:

In her early early forties and about to remarry, Rica Ramos realizes that starting over could mean leaving her mother behind. She longs to heal the relationship, but her mother still refuses to acknowledge the sexual abuse Rica suffered at the hands of her stepfather, or her own culpability throughout the years. With old traumas resurfacing and a new life unfolding before her, Rica grasps the power of unspoken grief—and the potential to suffer or heal. Will she and her mother ever cross the chasm between them, or are some secrets meant to stay buried?

As Rica navigates her options, she faces two ultimate choices: submit to a culture that shames daughters for not honoring their mothers, or muster the courage to go her own way. Offering a bold and lucid look at mother-daughter relationships, Nobody’s Daughter underscores every woman’s right to truth and validation.

Book Blurbs: 

“Nobody’s Daughter is a lucid recollection… heartbreakingly raw. In a fiercely candid voice, Ramos has crafted a tale that resonates with the universal truth that our past doesn’t define us; it refines us.”— Allison Hong Merrill, author of Ninety-Nine Fire Hoops

“Rica’s imagery is fresh, precise and strongly drawn. Nobody’s Daughter (a mother would book) is suffused with a beauty as brutal as it is breathtaking. Her memoir is a compelling account of her lifelong journey from unspeakable betrayal and violation to healing and wholeness. She pulls apart and examines with precision the many interwoven layers of love, loss, and the lies we live with. Ramos is a writer of extraordinary talent, with a gift for bringing clarity to complex issues. Her voice demands to be heard.” —Lee Gaitan, award-winning author of four books, named 2018’s Georgia Independent Author of the Year.

“(Ramos) pulls no punches in analyzing the wellsprings of her adult challenges and childhood angst…. She emerges from this reflective process to a new position of power…Very highly recommended mother wound book for anyone interested in self-help strategies, memoirs of abuse and recovery, and those involved in transforming lives from a foundation of abuse to achieve empowerment.”

–D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
