A Mother’s Love (The Love of a Non-Biological Mother), a new book by Cassandra Mitchum has been released by RoseDog Books.

It all began in the early fifties in a little dusty southern town in South Carolina. Annie and Luby Williams were blessed with two little girls from New York City. Cassandra Mitchum was one of the little girls. They lived in St. Stephens, a small farming community, surrounded by large acres of cotton and tobacco fields. They lived far from the city limits, yet still in walking distance from the town. Their dusty old road was connected to the main Highway 45.The drinking water came from an old hand-pumped well on the back porch. Their laundry water came from an old well in the backyard. The Williams family had no refrigerator, no television, no phone, no electric iron, and no radio, but they did have electricity.

Mitchum was five years old and her sister, Paulette, was four. Mama sat them down in the living room and showed them their birth certificates. She said their mother’s name was Pauline and their father’s name was Leroy Gordon. They both lived in New York. She explained that she and Daddy were not their real parents. She began to tell the girls the story of how they became her children.

Cassandra is also the author of a book of poems entitled God’s Divine Love (non-published). Out of this book, the National Library of Poetry, Owings Mills, MD, has published many poems in various anthologies, including The Lyrical Heritage, 1996, and Best Poems of 1997 and 1998. She has received many awards, including the Award of Merit Certificate of 1990, Golden Poet 1991, and an Editor’s Choice Award of Outstanding Achievement 1996, 1997, and 1998 for her work in poetry. She is a member of The International Society of Poetry. Her poems can be read on the Internet. Cassandra is a subject of biographical record in Marquis Who’s Who of America in the East 27th Edition 1999-2000 and also the biographical record in Marquis Who’s Who of America and Who’s Who of The World, Millennium Edition 2000.
