I was reading my daughter-in-law's copy recently and loved the stories. The one major flaw is that the author of each chapter is not mentioned. I had read about the tribute to Ann Romney by her son in another venue. But I had no clue who wrote the other articles. They chapters became more tender when I knew it was written by a family member who knew the best and worst about the woman in their life.

I love this book. As one who dislikes attending Mother's Day services, I thought this book would be story after story about angel Mormon moms. Thankfully, it is not. Although there are some truly angelic mothers (Marjorie Hinckley & Esther Packard come to mind), there are plenty of stories that honor the REAL mothers I relate to, who struggle, try hard, fail at times, yet keep plugging away at life.

With regard to the previous comment about not knowing who wrote each story...I saw a bio on every contributor. It may not be at the beginning of the story, but it's definitely there in every case. Must've missed it.
