Bokomslag Mammorna av Alexandra Pascalidou

The mothers (Mammorna)

The mothers (Mammorna)

We come from the mothers.

All mothers through history have had one thing in common – From Mother Earth to Virgin Mary and Mother Svea – they rarely have spoken. Until now.

In this book we will give a voice to these voiceless and invisible mothers by telling their story with their own words. Without filter.

It’s time to listen to the mothers!
