Tanya shares a delicate part of her life in dealing with a high-risk pregnancy, the birth, and death of her 21-day old baby, Jayda. Trisomy 18 is a chromosome disorder where there is little to no research. She shares her battles with physicians and personal experience in taking care of her family as they all are impacted by every decision she and her husband makes. This book is not just about a mother who lost her baby, but showed how she coped with "reality" by escaping temporarily by daydreaming, singing and PRAYING.

Emma takes you on a journey through her life exposing some of the misfortunes many black families suffered back in the '60s. She shares personal, heartfelt and painful stories she experienced as a child growing up in a low-income family with eight other siblings. Stories shared are those not talked about in most families from physical abuse for incest.
As stated in her book, Emma selected Mayonnaise Sandwich as her book title because "if the mayonnaise sandwich is not wrapped right, it will go bad."
