Michigan author releases book about motherhood
In her new novlette, Ypsilanti-based author Sunshine Welch tells the true tale of what it took to be a single mother. The book, “What It Took to Raise My Daughter,” is a 36-page paperback in which Welch writes about supporting herself and her daughter for several years as a dancer and then a medical assistant. A string of circumstances led to the author confronting a period of homelessness and being forced to live separate from her daughter for a time. While she despaired at times, she continually sought to regain stability in order to maintain her relationship with her child. Welch still lives in the area, where she continues to write, and enjoys the outdoors, music and spending time with her family. She lives with her three dogs and visits with her daughter during breaks from college. The book retails for $8 and is available at DorranceBookstore.com.
