Mothers and Daughters Reviews
I'm not really one for short story compilations, but I enjoyed this one. I got this book to read Diana Gabaldon's story. I love EVERYTHING she has written. I enjoyed her story very much. I enjoyed the others as well. There was a good mixture of writing in this book to hold everyone's attention.
I got this book to read Gabaldon's short story and my rating is only based on her passage. The story "Dream A Little Dream For Me" is only 17 pages, incredibly short for Gabaldon, LOL. It's a cute story with a slight mystical/fantastical air about it and while I wasn't blown away by it, I did enjoy it and I'm glad I read it. (Note: The story isn't so much about a mother/daughter relationship)
Decided to read this because of stories by Diana Gabaldon and Faye Kellerman. Turned out to be a nice anthology, Loved Gabaldon's fantasy story. She never fails to write a good story. Faye Kellerman's entry was interesting with the method she used to include her young daughters in the writing process. She certainly gave us the teenage POS. Delightful. JA Jance's submission was more emotional, stiking real cords with divorced mothers. Well done.
My daughter gave this book to me for Christmas. I am not as much a short story person as she is but it captivated my interest. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This was a nice compilation of stories about the mother / daughter relationship. Multiple authors, writing styles, and approaches to the topic made this a unique and interesting book. Being a daughter, a mother of daughters, and a grandmother of grand daughters, I could relate to each of these stories in one way or another.
I just couldn't put it down. I bought it for Kristin Hannah's contribution, but I loved it because of the diversity of all of the stories. Almost all gems, only two that I thought were just ok. This book is a hidden treasure.And it seemed perfect to me that it ended with Hannah's short story - beautiful.
I loved Kristin Hannah's story, but all of them were really good. My mother passed the book to me and I can't wait to share it with my daughter.
I thought this collection was so-so. There were a couple of nice stories about the relationship between mother and daughter, but overall I wasn't fascinated.
Some of these stories were page-turning fabulous, some of them were, well, not as much. But of course, my favorite by far was Kristin Hannah's. Not that I expected any different!
