Q: This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother’s Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?
It seems like I'm always mentioning The Poisonwood Bible, but in this case it fits perfectly. The relationship between the mother and her daughters is what really fuels the novel.
Of course, Pride and Prejudice also has a strong mother/daughter relationship, although not the most positive one.
Oh, and Medea. I don't think there's a more complicated mother/child relationship out there.
