“Behind all your stories is always your mother’s story. Because hers is where yours begin.” —Mitch Albom
As we approach Mother’s Day, (it’s the 13th – hurry and order flowers!) we thought you might like to also pick up a good book and read a ‘mom story.’
The special bond between a mother and child can be the most emotional and the most complicated of any relationship. It’s no wonder that moms have inspired some of the most heartfelt and heart wrenching writing in all of literature.
In honor of Mother’s Day, the Cordova Public Library crew rounded up some exceptional and unforgettable women written by their daughters and sons.
