Corinne Bailey Rae talks about the turbulence of her life over the last few years. After the excitement of initial huge success, her husband died unexpectedly. She's since gone on to find love again and with her new husband and producer, they have made her latest album, The Heart Speaks in Whispers. She performs her new single, Stop Where You Are, in the Woman's Hour studio. As part of Monday's BBC News, A World on the Move, Woman's Hour looks at transnational motherhood - immigrant mothers from poorer countries who relocate to wealthier countries in search of better life chances and in doing so, leave their children behind in their native countries. Filmmaker and human rights activist, Deeyah Khan, talks about the launch of Sisterhood, an online magazine focussing on women of Muslim heritage from around the world. Continuing with our series listening to the experiences of young people leaving care, Jo Morris talks to Maggie and her foster mother, Yvonne.
