Lisa Humphrey is a literacy coach in Los Angeles and an advocate for peace and women's rights. She decided to write A Mother's Promise when a close friend wondered whether the world was too frightening to bring a child into it. I know I had the same question when I was pregnant and was able to find some comfort by reading A Mother's Promise and being reminded that there are many beautiful things in the world (along with all of the scary stuff). A Mother's Promise is Humphrey's only children's book.
