    I originally read 'Mothers' about 8 years ago and was very absorbed by the story and the characters in it. I found it beautifully ,
    sensitively and intellectually written. Ms. Lowell is extremely observant and capable to make the reader empathize closely with the
    personalities in the book . This is a quality that true artists must have to be able to master their craft. It was evident in this book when I
    first read it. This year I decided to re visit this book and read it again. I found myself equally absorbed by it all over again as I when
     I read it the first time. More significant this time is how timely the family in this book is. This is a very thought provoking book which
     I have shared with friends in the past and will continue to recommend highly.
