This book's writing prompts assume that you want to record memories and practice thankfulness, but they do not assume uncomplicated relationships, and I like that. Though the cover of the book is indisputably "feminine," any reader could find the prompts useful. Though the prompts themselves assume that you will have many positive memories to record, Laura shares not packaged but authentic memories, so a reader with more complex memories could easily resonate with her stories and then respond to the prompts as well.
Readers of all sorts, then, might enjoy this book--readers with mothers who are still living, and readers with mothers who are not, readers with birth mothers and adoptive mothers and step-mothers, readers who enjoy great relationships with their mothers, and readers who would describe their relationships as more or less complicated. Men and women. Young and old. Readers who intend to then give the filled-in book as a gift, and readers who intend to keep it for their own record. So I'm glad for the book, not least because it's helping me make my own bouquet of memories.
The author shares many poignant memories like running through the sprinklers her mom set up, stories about the items she would sew, etc. This really is a nice tribute to the authors mother, but it will spark new memories about your own mother.
