I read this one a few years ago and loved it then. It is just as inspiring and fascinating the second time around. This is a story told by a daughter about her mother, Evelyn Ryan. Throughout the book you know that her ten children see her as a hero. By the end of the book you completely agree with them. She never falters in her goals or determination. She manages to do incredible things in circumstances that most people would view as hopeless. It is a tribute to one mother, but in a lot of ways a tribute to the millions of mothers who guide their children through life’s ups and downs in a way that can seem almost miraculous.
This book is perfect for a Book Group and as insightful as it is funny.
