Happy Mother’s Day!

In honor of Mother’s Day, I recall so many great books that have strong maternal characters. I recently read one that was about a mother and her two daughters that had me crying on every other page, the emotional connections were so great.

I could never have guessed the amount of emotion I was capable of until I became a mother. Books, movies, even tv show episodes all affect me differently since my son was born. The greatest things in life are almost always the most challenging. But that’s because it makes you feel as if you’ve become the best you can be.

Books have a similar capability of bringing out those tremendous emotional connections. What novels with strong mothers and focus on families do you remember?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there. Including to my mother, the best of them all (bias required!)
