Award-winning reporter Janny Scott interviewed nearly two hundred of Dunham's friends, colleagues, and relatives including both her children , and combed through boxes of personal and professional papers, letters to friends, and photo albums, to uncover the full breadth of this woman's inspiring and untraditional life, and to show the remarkable extent to which she shaped the man Obama is today.
Dunham's story moves from Kansas and Washington state to Hawaii and Indonesia. It begins in a time when interracial marriage was still a felony in much of the United States, and culminates in the present, with her son as our president- something she never got to see. It is a poignant look at how character is passed from parent to child, and offers insight into how Obama's destiny was created early, by his mother's extraordinary faith in his gifts, and by her unconventional mothering.

Finally, it is a heartbreaking story of a woman who died at age fifty-two, before her son would go on to his greatest accomplishments and reflections of what she taught him. African Interest.
An unconventional woman who emerged from a conventional time, Stanley Ann Dunham's life crossed boundaries and cultures and confounded her generation's strictures of gender and race. As twice divorced, single mother of two children from two fathers-men from two different countries and races-she built a deeply traditional life for herself and her children, raising them largely in a foreign country, even sending Barack across the world for a better education at age ten.
Beginning in a time when interracial marriage was still a felony in much of the United States, and finding its culmination in the present moment, with Barack Obama as our president, A Singular Woman is an extraordinary moving, insightful, and inspiring story of how character is passed from parent to child, and a window into how Barack Obama's destiny was created early by his mother's extraordinary faith in his gifts, and by her unconventional mothering.
