    A reviewer

    This book begs you to contemplate a huge question. When you have the chance to have your dream after years of sacrifice for family, would you put it on hold again for ¿mid-life¿ baby? I think that for most people, it would be a no brainer. Have the baby. Give up the dream. Others might say that a woman in her 40¿s should be able to follow her dream ¿ whatever means necessary. Linda Warren doesn¿t make the decision all that easy for Claire. Through a great use of letters between Claire and Dean as a gateway into the past, we see the struggles and sacrifices the family goes through during their twenty-five year marriage. By putting family first, Claire¿s dream of college continually got pushed to the wayside. And now¿ It might get pushed aside again. In many ways, I found it heartbreaking, but I like that Dean and Claire discover they have quite an emotional support network with their family. I highly recommend Always a Mother. Like many of Linda¿s books, it enforces the power of family.

    an entertaining contemporary family crisis tale

    They were high school sweethearts, who had kids as teens. Dean became a football star while Claire stayed home to raise their children. Now the kids are grown and Claire looks forward to finally completing her college degree and obtaining a full time job outside the home that she put on hold.---------------- There is only one problem confronting Claire she is pregnant for the first time in two decades. Stunned she is not sure she wants to raise another child and give up her plans. Needing to be by herself, Claire leaves Dean to think. Accompanied by their love letters, she slowly rereads how much her spouse loved her then and that is true now.-------------- Linda Warren provides an entertaining contemporary family crisis tale that stars a wonderful nurturing woman who needs to find herself beyond being a loving mother and wife. This is clearly Claire¿s tale as she loves her family, but is not sure she can raise a late life child, but in isolation begins to conclude she will always be a mother and always love her husband and kids including the unborn one. Although the need to leave seems off kilter for Claire even if she feels over the edge fans will appreciate ALWAYS A MOTHER as Claire ponders whether she can handle raising a child again, remain a loving devoted wife, and work at obtaining her degree.-------------- Harriet Klausner

    Deserves More Than 5 Stars

    If you are a romantic at heart, then this book is a must read. This is Linda Warren's best work yet. The book made me smile, laugh, and cry. This book is about true love, and how that some mistakes turn out to be blessings. I highly recommend this book, because it is the best romance book, I have read in a long time.
