From an Amazon Female Customer in America:
The book captures your attention from start to finish. It’s a story of trials, tribulations and triumphs. A story of love, forgiveness, self discovery, finding strength in hardships and a reason to push forth and not be held back by your adversities. Regardless of your background, you will find pieces that resonate with your day to day life or the life of those around you.
Nyajuok’s sense of humor carries throughout the book which makes it easier to spruce through the book. It was an emotional rollercoaster reading, but one that you want to continue reading because there’s a lesson in almost every chapter and not to mention the thrill of wanting to know how things unfold. She captures her audience’s attention from the preface till the very last page. I can sit here and tell you why you should read this book, but I’m going to say, pick up the book, read the first pages and tell me you’re not hooked....Agnes Akok
From a South Sudan man in Uganda, Africa:
Having the opportunity to read 'I am my mother's wildest dream' by Nyajuok Tongyik, is one of the greatest and unique blessings I have ever received in my entire life. The book is written in simple English, easy to interpret and more lively in the sense that it reflects most of the South Sudanese stories. The book is mixed with a lot of fun and sad realities at some points that make me want to cry at some points.
To all the young women and girls across South Sudan and beyond, especially those that have been victimized and deformed by culture for so long, this book is the right remedy for your struggling souls. I encourage each one of you to dedicate some 2 to 3 days to read this book and acquainted yourselves with Nyajuok's story. You will agree with me that it is not different from yours. You can as well remove Nyajuok and replace it with your name and the story will remain the same. I challenge you to speak up against these biased cultural norms and make yourself free from these cruel social injustices. This book will cultivate a sense of courage in you to take an imminent action that will turn around your life. You are the architect of your own future and having this small book in your hands will prove it to you beyond doubts.
To my fellow men, this book contains the right ingredients on how to live in a healthy and lovely relationship. It makes no sense at all when we subjected our partners to untold suffering when we don't want our sisters to experience the same. Nyajuok's story is an eye-opener for all of us and should clearly dictate how we view our female relatives. These social injustices we perpetrated against our valuable mothers and sisters deprived them their human benefits. Grabbing "I am my mother's wildest dream" will give you a space and opportunity to turn the world around you. Be the change you want to see and start it by grabbing yourself a copy.
Last but not least, millions of congratulations to you Nyajuok for courageously coming out and tell the world what you have gone through. It is a life-inspiring story that cultivates a sense of hope, hard work and above all having faith in the Almighty God. You clearly proved to us that, our past has nothing to do with our future. I want to encourage you to keep striving and do your best for your people. I need to read more of your well-written books. If you haven't yet think of writing another book, please start writing now not tomorrow. Such unique stories always have a great positive impacts on people's lives. I want to end by paraphrasing some text that I liked the most from Nyajuok's book. 'The pastors in my church often preached sermons saying those who ended their own life would not go to heaven, and I wanted to go to heaven. It was my desire for eternal life with God that kept me from carrying out the act of taking my own life... Mahoth Rong Chieng
