Book Nook: At My Pace - Lessons from Our Mothers

I've never heard of the At My Pace books, but now that I had a chance to review At My Pace: Lessons from Our Mothers I might have to check out the other one. Each essay in the book is about a thousand words, which is short enough to read during a quick break, and contains a clear lesson that the author learned from his or her mother. The book is divided by age range (under forty, forty to eighty, and over eighty), but there are common threads throughout all the age groups.

Topics include love, acceptance, redemption, stress, duty, resilience, defiance, independence, support, and more. I really enjoyed reading all the difference stories, how different all the relationships are, yet how much love comes through in all of them, even if the lesson learned was difficult.
