A Mother's Gift: An Inspiring Collection of This I Believe Essays Celebrating Motherhood
Synopses & Reviews
An inspiring collection of the personal philosophies and core values of a fascinating group of Americans with a focus on motherhood. The perfect Mother's Day gift.
Based on the NPR series of the same name, this new 1-CD collection of This I Believe essays will again gather a diverse group of essayists—ranging from famous to previously unknown—completing the thought that begins the books title with respect to mothers and motherhood. The result will be another stirring and provocative trip inside the minds and hearts of people whose beliefs—and the remarkably varied way in which they choose to express them—reveal the American spirit at its best.

* The People Who Love You When No One Else Will by Cecile Gilmer
