Author Ermy Ozaeta’s memoir as shaped by the events and experiences that made her daughter, her teacher

A moving memoir that focuses about a single mother’s journey of life with her daughter, her love, her pain and eventual transformation as shaped by the events and experiences that made her daughter, her teacher is in a book titled My Daughter My Teacher written by Ermy Ozaeta.

In a moving narrative that spans five decades and two continents, the author recounts her journey to find herself and the happiness that had eluded her. After a brief and pain-filled marriage, she faces the challenges of being a single mother to Angelica. Because of her abiding love, she is forced to confront the issues in her own past and, in the end, finds that the answers to all her questions were inside her all along. Without either one of them realizing it, her daughter had become her biggest teacher.

This book dwells a lot on the lessons of the past, as well as the promise of the present; on the role that religion and spirituality played in healing and making a person whole. While no one can undo what’s already been done, while no amount of tears or self-recrimination can rewrite lives, this story can somehow bring hope and healing to families who find themselves challenged by similar situations. Circumstances may differ but the lessons are the same.

Also, this book shows to readers that the quest for happiness and contentment is both timeless and universal. Replete with nuggets of wisdom culled from both spiritual and secular sources, the author chronicles her transformation from egotism to altruism. It is a story for anyone who is seriously seeking transcendental answers to life’s biggest questions.
