Do not miss this fantastic book! I can't say it any better than what was written in the Washington Post: "If you read The Mothers, you will learn a lot. You will learn what it's like to experience a mother-shaped absence at the center of your life, as well as what it's like to feel your mother's hot, judgmental breath on your shoulder every second. You'll learn that men, even when they do the wrong thing again and again, have feelings about babies born and unborn. You'll learn that rigidly cruel actions have roots in sad, earned wisdom."
