Heart Of A Mother Review

by Shannan on May 2, 2009

heartmotherHeart of a Mother, written by Sheryl Roush, is a wonderful compilation of stories and inspiration for and about mothers and grandmothers. I have not yet had the opportunity to read the entire book, but what I have read is beautifully written, heartwarming, and enjoyable. Some of the excerpts I read brought back wonderful memories of my mother, whose loss I am struggling with this Mother’s Day.

One of the stories that I identified the most with was “Family Circus Christmas,” a tale of a mother trying to be June Cleaver and ending up a bit more like something from a comic strip. I have been there so many times, myself. Wanting life to be just so and feeling as if I had failed, when everyone around me was just as happy as could be with my efforts.

You can read excerpts from the book at the Heart Book Series website, as well as on Amazon, where the book has received rave reviews. It has also received endorsements from other authors, who said:

As a child, my Aunt Della was like a mother to me who nourished me with her chocolate chip cookies. I remember the warm feelings when I smelled a batch of her fresh baked cookies. In Heart of A Mother, Sheryl Roush and her contributors have captured those same kinds of feelings, feelings that will warm your heart and bring your mother close again. It’s a great read.
– Wally Amos, The Cookie Man & Author

Heart of a Mother is an exquisite tapestry of stories, quotations, songs, and poems that will pull on your heartstrings. A must read and an incredible gift for all the mothers of the world!!!
– Lisa R. Delman, Author of Dear Mom, I’ve Always Wanted You to Know

Seems interesting. A perfect gift for myself, that despite of loosing a mother. with stories present in that book, it will reminisce the memories that we had, and she is just beside me while reading the book. I should buy one.
