Queens, New York (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Immigrants should be recognized for their ability to survive and yet maintain their dignity and heritage, says author Bibi K.
Based on the first-hand accounts of the author, The Green Grass tells the gripping story of the struggles and sacrifices of a single mother as she transitions to life in America. It reveals how she deals with the emotional trauma of being separated from her parents, siblings, and above all, her two children.
“When you are faced with hardships in life, you need to dig deep down within and find the resources to propel you forward,” says Bibi.
The author hopes that The Green Grass will open readers’ eyes and hearts to the plight of immigrants and their families who are often dealing with emotional turmoil and personal tragedies.
Bibi says, “Immigrants are human beings too and they have dreams and aspirations just like any other person.”
As a former teacher, Bibi always advocates for education. She hopes that through this book, parents will continue to educate their children and in general, help the world better understand what people have to endure when they come to America in search of a better life.
