Three Mothers
Three Mothers
by Sonia Lambert
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars It is an absolutely brilliant portrayal of the relationships, 19 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Three Mothers (Paperback)
I can't believe that this novel is not more widely recognized. I picked it randomly from my library, and I couldn't put it down. It is an absolutely brilliant portrayal of the relationships, sometimes too close for comfort, between mothers and daughters. Love, life and death, family secrets and lies are all recounted with unerring honesty. A huge thank you to Sonia Lambert for this amazing book. Elizabeth Leaming (author of 'Shells In Her Pocket')

Just what I needed to make the jelly making season go smoothly. This is so much better than my home made contraption and when washed the stain of the juice disappears.

This review is from: The Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
I first read this book when I was a teenager. Since then I have regularly returned to it, finding something new every time, as my experience of life changes. Although somewhat out of fashion at the moment, I believe that Lawrence is still one of our greatest writers and his observations of male and female relationships are as relevant today as when he wrote them.

What an inspirational book. I first became aware of Nick in a video clip shown at church and I had to read his life story. It's full of courage and enthusiasm, told with wit and sound advice. I shall never feel sorry for myself again.

This is just what my daughter wanted so that she could make sushi for herself after being taught to do it on a recent trip to Japan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 13 Feb. 2014

A fantastic read. So very sad to think of all those women left without a hope of being married after the First World War. The book covers a wide range of different women's experiences and highlights the full and varied lives many of the women led after the trauma of losing their loved ones.

It is a lovely calender, but I would have liked it larger - I didn't check the size accurately on ordering.
