Kinky Roots

A Memoir by Ingrid Arlington

Synopsis: A Memoir – The memories, ruminations and vignettes of growing up in Southern Africa. Written from the life, wisdom and experiences of Ingrid Arlington, ‘Kinky Roots’ is an uplifting, poignant and reflective journey alongside the author. From a tumultuous upbringing in Zimbabwe, where violence and sexual assault was rife – to Ingrid meeting her husband in South Africa before starting an arduous new life in the UK. It’s a story that explores how identity, excuses, religion, relationships, self-worth and family heritage all ultimately lay life’s crazy pathway. United Kingdom – When Ingrid Arlington looks back on her life, it’s been a rollercoaster defined by adversity, poor relationships with men, a move to the other side of the world – and some bold life lessons that have ultimately made Arlington a fearlessly strong woman. In her new memoir, ‘Kinky Roots’, Arlington invites readers to step alongside her as they rise from the ashes of loss and harassment in Zimbabwe, to a new life in the UK. No step has been without its challenges, yet Arlington steadfastly defines each as a vital part of her story.

First of all I want to say a thank you to the lovely author for sending me a copy of her book!

I loved the way this book was written! The warmth and friendliness of her tone really invites you into her story. Invites you into her heart. It’s always so interesting to read about someone else’s life. To see what type of hardships they’ve faced, to celebrate in their joys, mourn their losses… it always feels like you’re diving head first into their personal life, and honestly…it makes you feel like you’re truly friends.

I think I mentioned this about another book recently…But I really, truly don’t understand songs listed throughout books. Why exactly? What am I supposed to do with that? I don’t listen to music while I read, so am I supposed to like pause reading and listen to the song? Is it there for a reason? I am Confused.

Also… can I just…. what the actual heck, what.. why, who, what? Banana, avocado and bacon pizza!? Why is that a thing.

I admire the authors tenacity and her bravery, I admire her journey to becoming unapologetically herself. So hats off to her and her lovely story. I would absolutely recommend this book.

I rate this book

7/10
