Mothers and Others: A Story Collection is a thoughtful set of eight short stories that tell tales of intelligent Americans living life as well as they can and learning from their struggles. Each story is populated by strong, believable characters who are confronted by ordinary life situations that challenge them in some way; and who, through their persistence, honesty, and humor, are able to turn tragedy into triumph, move on, and face whatever comes next.
Among the uplifting stories in this compelling collection are those of an adult daughter who reflects on her lovingly difficult relationship with her quirky aging mother; a pair of young mothers who critically observe each other's different parenting styles during an eight-hour car ride together with their children; a middle-aged woman accidentally addicted to a miscategorized pain killer prescribed by her doctor, who's left on her own in a rehab center when her doctor is called away on a family emergency; and, a married man of thirty-two years who lustfully recalls the year-long courtship that eventually led to his marriage.
A must-read for anyone who values life as an educational work-in-progress, Mothers and Others is an inspiring work that's sure to entertain, enlighten, and encourage.
