Follow Friday


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.

I really need to read The Poisonwood Bible. I've heard such good things about it, yet haven't picked it up, yet.

I considered Pride and Prejudice only because it is one of my all time favs... but I agree not the greatest Mother/Daughter relationship

Poisonwood Bible is on my top ten list (I'm a huge Kingsolver fan). I also agree with Pride and Prejudice and would had Sense and Sensibility to that list as well. (So relieved not to read another HARRY POTTER/Mrs. Weasly answer to this question.

Nice to meet you.

I am not familiar with the books you mentioned although Medea sounds familiar. Greek mythology maybe? Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. For some reason GFC hates me and will not allow me to follow. I will try back later and see if I can get it to work. Have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for sharing your thoughts on the question. :)
