Mothers~ FF ~ 5/11/12


Q:  This Sunday in the U.S is Mother's Day, in celebration, what are some of your favourite books with strong mother/child relationships?


The first book that comes to mind is "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.  "Marmie" is left alone to raise her 4 daughers while her husband is off at war.  She has a special bond with each of her daughters as they struggle to survive and become young women.  I get warm fuzzies just thinking about this book :)

Little Women (Penguin Classics)

I love you, Mom!  Happy Mother's Day!

  7. Great pick! I loved Little Women, but I've only seen the film, maybe I'll check out the book, too, someday.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Have a nice weekend!

  9. Oh, I've read Little Women such a long time ago that I completely forgot everything about it. Thank you for reminding me and for stopping by my blog. I'm following through GFC :)

  10. I will certainly agree with Little Women, an oft cited book answering this question. I have an early hardbound edition, which I keep on our piano. Can't help but pick it up and reread from time-to-time. It's a classic.
