Books about the Home Front
Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin is part memoir, part philosophy, and part experimentation as Rubin takes a year to make her home a happier one. A positive book with great suggestions!
When someone asks what you do and the response is “I’m just a mother”, then this book might shift the thinking a bit and take the ‘just’ right out of the answer. Be inspired by I Am a Mother by Jane Clayson Johnson.
Fiction for Mom
Set in the breathtaking Alaskan wilderness, first-time novelist Eowyn Ivey will enchant readers with her artistic and vivid prose in The Snow Child. If your mother has a fondness for fairy tales, this might be a book for her.
Send your mom on a trip to India! Dancing to the Flute by Manisha Jolie Amin is a beautiful tale full of music and life that could be described as being a mix of August Rush and Karate Kid set in India.
If your mom is a historical fiction fan, then CBR recommends The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig. The story is delightful and captivating, but the writing is absolutely stunning.
For a Philosophical Read
The Anatomy of Peace by the Arbinger Institute is one of those life-changing books everyone should read. It is a self-help book in a novel format.
