In honour of Mother’s Day, which is celebrated in many places around the world on various days in May, this week’s book photo challenge theme is Mother’s Love. The first book that came to my mind as representative of this is The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. It’s been more than a year since I read it but what has left an impression on is the focus on women from three generations — Ava, her mother and her grandmother. It traces Ava’s present day as well as the magical history that preceded her through her mother and her mother’s mother.
Truly, who we are and become is hugely impacted by our own mothers. It’s equally remarkable how the past of a mother’s mother (or father’s mother, for that matter) can have such great bearing on us. A lot of that I believe stems from a mother’s love. She does what she can to provide the best for her offspring and for this I’m immensely grateful too to my own mother.
Which other books can you think of that demonstrate a mother’s love?
