Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Everyone loves finding-oneself travel memoirs, and this one has a particular hook; it follows up Come Back, the best-selling story of Claire Fontaine's efforts to rescue daughter Mia from drug addiction. A decade later, they were eager to move beyond the roles defined in that book and launched a six-month, 16-city, 12-country getting-restarted tour, featured here, with adventures that included a passport-eating elephant. With 50,000-copy first printing.
National Geographic Traveler
“If you like Eat Pray Love then check out Have Mother, Will Travel...Written in alternating voices, the book humorously documents the power of travel to test and deepen relationships.”
BookPage.com
“Frequently hilarious and often sobering … poignant and affecting.”
Spencer Daily Reporter
“‘Have Mother, Will Travel,’ is a must-read for every woman (or man, for that matter). It’s charming and enlightening, and will help any reader in their own understanding of this world and the relationships that it contains.”
Leah Komaiko
“Have Mother, Will Travel is filled with what I would have given anything to experience and treasure with my own mother—the inner workings of our hearts and thoughts. I love these women!”
Ree Drummond
“A beautiful, funny, and oh-so-representative peek into how complicated—and wonderful—a mother-daughter relationship can be…. I could feel, as a mother and a daughter, every struggle and bump in the road…the love between a mother and daughter, while not always sunshine and daisies, will never end.”
Maureen Murdock
“Finally, a book that celebrates the complexities of the mother-daughter bond with humor and depth. Both authors come to terms with who they are as women—together and apart—as they traverse twenty countries. Their relationship is an inspiration; you’ll want to travel every step of the journey with them.”
Tracey Jackson
“Nobody writes with as much honesty, bravery, and humor as Claire and Mia Fontaine when it comes to the dynamic of the complex, baffling, nurturing, infuriating, comforting labyrinth known as the mother/daughter relationship. No matter how far we travel or what we do, we will always be one.”
Janice Croze
“An extremely insightful and inspiring look at how we relate, with our loved ones, with ourselves, and the world….Their courage in examining themselves, and their relationship, reminds us how important it is to stay mindful and proactive in all of our relationships, especially with our family.”
Kelle Hampton
“As a mother of young daughters, I finished this book with such anticipation for the future, inspired by the relationship that Claire and Mia have formed through challenges and triumphs…. I found myself falling deeper in love with the soul–transforming journey of both loving a mother and raising a child.”
