Source of the Spring: Mothers Through the Eyes of Women Writers

Overview

Through a wide cross-section of age and cultural background, The Source of the Spring explores how our perceptions of mothers in women's lives have changed over the generations. In prose that ranges from beautifully memorable and heart-warming to searingly honest and moving, this anthology is a tour-de-force from some of today's most formidable writers, taking on a topic at once tender and challenging.
