I loved this book. If you have lost someone that is very close to you, this book will ring especially true. This is my favorite Oates book that I have read so far.
Good book, but also very sad.
If you have a Mom, this book is for you. If you love her, hate her, miss her or still have her, read Missing Mom. You'll get a new appreciation for the steadfastness of motherhood, the beauty of all those simple things are mothers do for us. I don't think I'll ever forget this wonderful book.
First Joyce Carol Oates book I've read, and I liked it, but wasn't crazy about it. Well written, and wonderfully developed characters, but a little slow for me.
A hauntingly beautiful book that explores the never-ending bond between mothers and daughters, a bond that survives beyond the grave.
