Dear Penny,
It rained the day you were born. Outside the maternity ward, the sky was the colour of liquid ash, and there was a sign that read: BIRTHDAYS ARE OUR SPECIALITY. I focused on it as I laboured, as the nurses and doctors clamoured around me. ๐‘Œ๐‘œ๐‘ข'๐‘Ÿ๐‘’ ๐‘›๐‘’๐‘Ž๐‘Ÿ๐‘™๐‘ฆ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’๐‘Ÿ๐‘’, a nurse exclaimed.
I trembled and bore down, wanting it to be over. A scream tore from my mouth. I pushed. The doctor pulled. And there you were. There. You. Were. Held aloft in a blistering cone of light.
Terrible silence ensued, one agonising second stretching into eternity. As if you were deciding how your entrance into the world should be.
Finally, you wailed, so high-pitched and piercing even the doctor commented on it. ๐‘‡โ„Ž๐‘–๐‘  ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘’ โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘  ๐‘Ž ๐‘™๐‘œ๐‘ก ๐‘ก๐‘œ ๐‘ ๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ ๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘Ž๐‘‘๐‘ฆ, she said. Secretly, I was pleased by the fury in your voice. This boded well for you, I believed. You would not be easily silenced...

How amazing does that sound! ill be starting Mika early next week and can not wait to share my thoughts with you all.

Check out the synopsis below...


AT 35, MIKA SUZUKI IS STRUGGLING.


She's been fired (again). Her last relationship went up in flames. Her mother is perpetually disappointed in her.


And now, she's had a phone call from sixteen-year-old Penny Calvin: the baby she reluctantly placed for adoption when she was just a teenager herself.


Penny has questions - and Mika is desperate to meet her girl. But she barely feels like she can take care of herself . . .


Is she ready to show Penny who Mika Suzuki really is?
