Being a woman in a male-dominated society is challenging, where being a single mom is seen as immoral and a bad societal influence. The Kintsugi Moms by Dr. Haseena Chokkiyil is a collection of stories from single mothers with health issues and their journey toward self-healing and living a happy and purposeful life. These women chose to leave their marriages due to mistreatment and domestic violence from their husbands. Others were widows, while the rest decided to be single mothers out of their own free will. Though regarded as a curse to society, a bad omen, and a bad influence, Dr. Haseena Chokkiyil offers homeopathic remedies that have enabled them to rise with heads held high, overcome their challenges, and start their journey to self-healing and finally living happily, and healthily, and successfully.
Dr. Haseena Chokkiyil's stories are relatable to any single mother globally. These stories give such victims a sense of belonging by letting them know they are not alone. It also offers the courage to leave abusive marriages and lead fulfilling lives independently. The stories create awareness and call for the cessation of stereotyping single mothers, respecting and accepting them for who they are since they, too, can become prominent members of society, as exemplified by other successful single mothers cited in the narrative. The author provides links so anyone interested in the topics discussed can find more information about them. I recommend The Kintsugi Moms to single mothers who can draw courage, hope, and faith from these stories to move on to the subsequent phases of their lives.
