This I Believe: On Motherhood

From the popular radio series This I Believe comes this inspirational compilation of original essays on what one writer has called the "definitive relationship"—motherhood. It is a relationship filled with love and heartbreak, pride and rebellion, advice not taken, and dreams realized.

A mother can be a cheerleader, a teacher, a breadwinner, an eternal optimist, and the safe harbor from life's many storms. This collection tells the personal stories of sixty essayists who share, in intimate terms, what motherhood means to them, exploring the unique bond that can be at once painful, loving, constructive, and nurturing

With rare candor, old and young children, biological mothers, stepmothers, and adoptive mothers all offer their perspectives. These essayists remind us that mothers may not always share our opinion or approve of all our actions, but they believe in us—and we believe in them, even if we aren't always able to show or say it.

Written as a keepsake book that can be a thoughtful gift for someone special in your life, This I Believe: On Motherhood offers a compelling portrait of the diverse range of experiences and beliefs related to the mother-child relationship. With personal insights and inspiration, this collection makes a wonderful gift for longtime mothers, new mothers, and mothers-to-be.
