Sorry if been done before, but I am having enough trouble mumsnetting without attempting a search on here! Am only allowed on for as long as it takes for the family meal to cook!

Anyway, there is a book by a female, black author on female genital mutilation/circumcision.

I can never remember the title but want to buy it, can anybody help?

My mind is saying lily/white/flower.

This is how I remember things (so if someone's surname is black then I think of things like coal until I remember!)

I am a little weirdy,sorry!

Googling came up with this , but I'm not sure it's what you're after. Is the one you're looking for fiction or not?

A list of books here - maybe the one called 'Cutting the rose'?

It isn't it but that looks interesting in any case!

I think, and should have said, it is autobiographical...

Oooh, that cutting the rose book could be the one!

Will have to buy it. Now faced with the book in question I am unsure whether it is the 'right' one but I think it probably is!

Thank you very much.

Just found this too which might be it?

Oh you STAR!!! That's it.

I have been half heartedly and avidly searching for this title for the last two years!

Thank you, thank you!
