Reviews

"Full of hope, regret and lessons learned, "Pieces of My Mother" is a unique and compelling look at how profoundly mothers affect our lives. Whether absent or hauntingly close, longing for a mother can force a child into maturity beyond her years, and garner her with a lifetime of longing. This book is as lyrical as it is honest, as humorous as it is heartbreaking." - MONICA HOLLOWAY, bestselling author of Cowboy & Wills and Driving with Dead People
