We joke about becoming our mother until one day we look in the mirror and she looks back. Or we speak and the words that flow out of our mouths are her words and in her voice. For good, or not, we become, in many ways, the woman who made us.
In My Mother in the Mirror, forty writers celebrate the love, time, and influence they have received from their mothers and acknowledge the role their mothers have played in their lives and legacy.
Contributors include Lauren Winner, Margaret Renkle, Mary Beth Whalen, Megan Alexander, Lisa Samson, Marg Wentworth, Lauri Arnold, Patti Callahan Henry and many more.
