Just in time for Mother’s Day, “Mom & Me & Mom” is Maya Angelou’s story of her relationship with her mother. Angelou has written several biographies that chronicle her amazing life, but she has never before given us a close up look at the bonds between a mother and a daughter. In the book Maya Angelou recounts her childhood experiences and the great divide between her mother and her, and the healing that took place between them as years passed.
Described by People Magazine as “Moving…a remarkable portrait of two courageous souls.” This book should be a great read for those who have read Maya Angelou’s other biographies and want to continue on the journey of discovery with her. For those who have had a difficult relationship with their mother, it would seem that this story would be familiar and perhaps therapeutic to read.
Maya Angelou tells a story in a way that not many people can, and in her 85th year she continues to give us stories that are relevant to the human experiences that we all share.
If you’re looking for something more humorous, there is ReShonda Tate Billingsley’s book “The Motherhood Diaries”. Billingsley recounts her tales as a working mom of three with a humor that many mothers are sure to relate to. There are also other mothers that contribute their experiences to the book as well, giving a diverse voice to moms everywhere.
With more than 20 stories described as “humorous and enlightening”, “The Motherhood Diaries” may be the perfect gift for a mom you know, or you may just want to keep it for yourself!
Both books can be found at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and other major retailers.
