Tuesday Talks: "Mother" by Kathleen Norris

It's Tuesday Talks again! This week I'm going to review a wonderful book, Mother by Kathleen Norris.

Mother is a fictional story about a young woman who is desperate to get away from her home for a "more fulfilled" life in the city. She is embarrassed by her large family and her mother and longs to get away to make her own life. God begins to change her heart, and by the end she has changed dramatically and returns home to her family. She realizes how fulfilled her mother always was in her place as wife, mama, and keeper at home. How wrong she had been living all those years with such a feminist mindset! The book has a wonderful ending, but I don't want give anything else away.

It includes a wonderful introduction by Jennie Chancey and is extremely well written.

If you haven't already read this book, I'd highly recommend that you do! It will bless you as you continue your quest to become a god-honoring stay-at-home daughter. You can purchase it from our Astore (in the sidebar) or from Vision Forum Ministries.


Now it's your turn! Review something on your blog and leave the link below!

Rules and Information on Tuesday Talks can be found in the sidebar.

I don't know if I can find that book, though I located a few others by the same author. Are there any you recommend?

Here is a link to that particular book. You probably won't find it in a bookstore - unless it's a specialty Christian bookstore like the one at my church.

I've never read any of Kathleen Norris' other books, so I can't recommend them, but I'll look for them -- I'd love to read some more of her writing!

We also recommend lots of other books in past postings and on our Astore list.

I hope this answers your question. Thanks for your comment!

I ran across your blog today, and I thought you would like to have my sister's blogs for Christian girls!
She loves comments!

I've read some other Kathleen Norris book that I didn't really care for. It wasn't Christian and was sounding like just another romance by the time I sent it back to the Library.
