Alice Eve Cohen’s memoir, The Year My Mother Came Back, is a beautiful book written with love, honesty, wit and candor. As she faces a most difficult time in her life, her mother, who died thirty years ago, reappears to her. Theirs had been a complicated relationship for reasons not understood for many years. Alice needs her now, just as Alice’s daughters need her. By conversing with her mother and examining her own childhood, she learns a great deal about what it means to be a daughter and a good mother.
Everything about this book is special and I loved reading it.
I received this book through LibraryThing for free and I give this review of my own free will.
