Her voice was the soundtrack of your childhood, her hands the ones that fed you, held you, dressed you in your first clothes. As a child you saw her daily, and as a grownup your connection to her is apt to remain so instinctive that you don’t even think about it. But how well do you really know your mother? Her life was rich and full of sauce well before you got here. The part of her you have seen and valued as her child is really only one facet of a complex and intriguing person.
So how do you get to know this person? Simple: you ask her to tell you who she is and has been. Conversations with My Mother will be your guide to doing just that.
This book is designed to be a keepsake, a record of dates and information about important people and events in your mother's life, and a repository for photos and mementos that capture its highlights. Think of it as a spark to ignite a rich and ongoing dialogue with a fascinating woman you’ve been waiting your whole life to truly know.
