Losing Amma, Finding Home

A Memoir about Love, Loss and Life’s Detours

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Uma Girish’s Losing Amma, Finding Home is a heart-rending narrative of losing a parent, living through the pain and transforming it to discover one true-calling and life’s purpose. This is a breathtaking inspirational and personal memoir that will ring true with every reader!
When Uma arrives to start life in a Chicago suburb with her husband, 14-year-old daughter and her dreams in the spring of 2008, she has no clue of the cosmic wheels in motion. Barely four weeks later, her 68-year-old mother, in India, is diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. Eight months later, she passes away. Losing her mother plunges Uma into the deepest despair, but more importantly, awakens a sudden clarity and knowing that ‘there has to be more to life than this’.

As she begins to navigate a new country and culture, she is also called on to navigate the lonely terrain of grief. Life begins to open doors and Uma finds comfort, connection and purpose in working with seniors at a retirement community. Every relationship that she forms with the seniors opens her heart a little wider as she seeks answers to the only questions that matter.

Who am I?
Why am I here?
What am I meant to do with this life?

Interweaving two cultures through a textured narrative, Uma uncovers the truths of her inner journey as she transforms – one event, one person at a time.
