Rezensionen
"These heartwarming and heart-rending essays will all but wrench the knowing tears from a mother's eyes, and from quite a few children as well... Throughout, the authors tell fascinating stories to illuminate the importance of their own mothers in ways to which we can all relate."--Scott Coffman, Louisville Courier-Journal
