In her two previous books. A Book for My Sister and A Book for My Daughter Pamela Winterbourne demonstrated a gift for finding the essential goodness of family relationships. Here she thanks her mother for her many gifts, and in her thanking she defines the goodness of mothering. She thanks her for the gift of time, the endless caring, the creations of a home, the comfort she offered, the lessons taught, the patience in listening, the stories told, the patience and unswerving love. Welleran Poltarnees has selected the images to buring these thoughts to greater life, as he did with Winterbourne's previous two books. This is, of course, an ideal gift for Mother's Day, but will be a welcome gift at any season.
