by Asha Bandele
£7.99   paperback  Simon and Schuster (2005)

Daughter by Asha Bandele At nineteen, Aya is a promising Black college student from Brooklyn who is struggling through a difficult relationship with her emotionally distant mother, Miriam.
One winter night, Aya is shot by a white police officer in a case of mistaken identity. Keeping vigil by her daughter's hospital bed, Miriam remembers her own youth: her battle for independence from her parents, her affair with Aya's father, and the challenges of raising her daughter.
But as Miriam confronts her past - her losses and regrets - she begins to heal and discovers a tentative hopefulness.
