Friday Finds



I came across this book while browsing Amazon.com. You know me, a sucker for memoirs....especially about mothers and daughters!

When I Married My Mother: A Daughter's Search and What Really Matters by Jo Maeder


Book Description:

Jo Maeder was an ambitious DJ in New York City when she did the unthinkable: she moved to the Bible Belt to look after her frail, estranged mother, who had long been a source of intense frustration. Maeder’s tumultuous journey from simply living with “Mama Jo” to learning to truly love her not only changed Maeder’s life, but also was the catalyst for pulling her long-fractured family together again. Though often rocky, their “marriage” was a triumph that taught her about life, faith, and what really matters.

With an estimated 34 million informal caregivers in the United States today, more and more adult children are finding themselves in similar circumstances. Poignant and refreshingly funny, Maeder’s story will resonate with this vast audience, providing an informative and inspirational roadmap for compassionate elder care.

Missy what is your favourite memoir? I enjoyed The Glass Castle and I'm reading The Prisoners Wife now, would like a recommendation as I want to try new books out of my norm a little.

Thanks for the "find."
