Book Nook: Two Tales of the Moon

There is a special bond between a mother and daughter - most of the time, it's very loving, but at the same time, very complex. I recently had a chance to review Two Tales of the Moon, a novel that explored this relationship and how our choices affect familial and cultural dynamics.

“A woman’s upbringing, her marriage, her career, the person she envisioned herself to be and the society she is living in, all can affect how she truly feels toward her daughter,” author Jennifer Sun says. “And one way or the other, how a daughter's life turns out has a lot to do with what kind of mother she has.”  

It's not the kind of book I normally would have picked up, but it's a book I'm glad I was sent to review. It was an interesting perspective on mother-daughter relationships, and how they tend to evolve as cultural priorities shift.
