Description
Through conversations between parents and children, husbands and wives, siblings and friends, the life of the American mother unfolds in this collection of interviews and personal stories from Dave Isay's NPR series StoryCorps, culled from 30,000 recorded interviews by everyday Americans.

"A couple describe an unexpected camaraderie between their mothers: one American, the other Ethiopian: 'My mom would speak in English, and your mom would speak in Amharic, and then they'd laugh and throw their hands up.' A mother of 12 tells her youngest, age 12, about her oldest, a soldier killed in Iraq. Reunited at age 60 with the son she reluctantly gave away, Hilory Boucher tells him what happened as she rode away from a Boston home for unwed mothers: 'You were handed off to a social worker at a stop on the Merritt Parkway, with your pink bunny and your layette.' Readers will encounter an emotional range from heart-wrenching to inspirational in these compelling maternal accounts."Publishers Weekly
