Just in time for Mother's Day, the next book in the A Letter to My series (after A Letter to My Dog and A Letter to My Cat) takes on mothers, with celebrities and civilians writing letters of gratitude and admiration to the women who raised them, alongside gorgeous, intimate photos.
I was not sure what to expected with this book when I got it, but I thought it would be a different book than what I typically read. And because of that I chose to read it for the #TBRTakedown readathon last week, this book was used for the challenge: a book outside my comfort zone. And I was completely right. This book is filled with heart-warming stories and memories through the letters. Each one was different but at the same time the same. It was clear regardless of the age of the writer or their gender, just how important their Mom was to their lives.
For me this was the strongest aspect of the book. Lisa Erspamer created this amazing book with such a large cast of characters. I loved how the letters written by everyday people with intermingled with letters written by people I "know" and have heard of. This really showed how everyone is the same when it comes to their Moms and what their Mom has done for them.
This was a really short read, and I'm not sure it is the best book to read cover to cover, but I do think it is a good book to pick up and read a few letters here and there.
