One of my goals for My Book Musings is to spread the news about Filipino authors and literature. I think we have some really good books, and with the influx of many budding writers (especially in the field of romance - written in English), I know the future of Filipino fiction is bright!

Today, I'm very excited to promote Don't Forget the Soap by Marie Claire Lim Moore.

Don’t Forget the Soap is a collection of anecdotes: stories from the tight-knit Filipino community in Vancouver mix with memories of her move to New York, experiences at Yale and travels as a young executive. Underlying this narrative is the story of a global citizen who does not want to forget the fundamental values that come along with the “immigrant experience” as she and her husband raise their children in the increasingly glitzy expat bubble of Singapore. Her parents continue to remain a big influence in her life and her mother’s reminders a grounding force. 

Share this inspiring book with the awesome women in your life!
