About The Book:
Letters to My Daughter is one woman’s testimony about gender, race, love, family, and the importance of creating a legacy that one can be proud of.
Infused with cultural anecdotes and life lessons, Letters to My Daughter is an open letter to not only her daughter, but to all young women in search of themselves.
“Pride is instilled. It’s what you carry with you every day of your life.-Nancy Arroyo Ruffin”
