Review: A SONG FOR MY MOTHER by Kat Martin

Genre: Women's Fiction
Hardcover
Vanguard Press (Ap 5, 2011)

I received this ARC for review and will be giving it away to one lucky commenter who answers a question.  The contest ends next Monday.

****************

A Song For My Mother is a reunion story between a daughter and her mother.  It's quite short--the author called it a novella in her interview at the end of the book--and I read it in one sitting.

Marly Hanson has been estranged from her mother, Winnie, for years since Marly ran away with her boyfriend during Junior High.  Marly has never forgiven her mother for never choosing to walk away from her abusive father, but because of her daughter's recent bout with brain cancer, she is compelled to visit her old hometown so her daughter could meet her grandmother.

Complicating matters, Marly becomes attracted to Winnie's next door neighbor, a handsome sheriff named Reed.  She isn't planning to stay and certainly doesn't intend to have a serious relationship.

Besides the mother-daughter conflict, there is also romance and friendship. Reed is the likeable and solid hero.  His son (he's a widower) makes a good friend for Marly's daughter.  Also, there's a small sub-plot that the author used to show how a decision made by any parent could be a mistake with grave consequences, highlighting Marly's and Winnie's past decisions.

A Song For My Mother is about Marly's journey back home.  It's a tale of understanding, forgiveness, and ultimately, love. The story is simple, with few surprises, but it's a charming and enjoyable read. I think it's a perfect Mother's Day gift.

My mom's favorite gift from me was the digital photograph that I loaded up with pics of me and my sisters. She really enjoys that when it comes on!

My mother's favorite was a tablecloth that I had crocheted.

I think my mother's favourite gift from me was a spa giftcard that I got her along with a pot of flowers, because she wasn't expected anything at all

The gift that was the most important to my mom was the gift of time...she was very ill and my aunt who was helping with her care had to have surgery. So I was asked to come back home for 5 weeks( we had just moved out of state).
It was the very best and most difficult of times.
I would not have traded the time together for anything.
