Format: Paperback
In the Introduction to this nonfiction book, Eric Bowen explains that he has been working to put together this book for nearly two decades. For him, it is a labor of love and giving back. That is why he has pledged half of the book's profits donated to charity.
The stories in this book are about good mothers and bad mothers and what we learn from each. They are honest stories, not saccharine or sweetened up. These are stories and poems by real people who have lived through true experiences. There's a great deal here and the stories come from people worldwide. From the very first story about the woman who contacted President Roosevelt to help save her daughter's life, the book grabs the reader's attention. It never disappoints or stops being interesting.
My contribution to this anthology is only one poem--although it happens to be one of my best. I take pride in being associated with this work and strongly recommend it to readers everywhere.

Format: Paperback
The determination of a mother is something never to be underestimated. "Wisdom of Our Mothers" is a collection of short stories and poetry written by an assortment of authors about the wisdom and tenacity that their mothers showed throughout their lives and how it inspired them well years later. Intriguing and solidly recommended reading, "Wisdom of Our Mothers" is a charming and thoughtful read, very highly recommended.

My mother passed away 10 years ago---This book helped me remember all the little things she did, and the big things also. It was good to revisit those memories, and for that I thank the editor and the writers.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a "feel good" book about mothers, this is not it. Brutal in some stories, inspiring in others, this book gives a frank and not always flattering look at mothers.
