Title: Looking for another Book (this one about mothers)
Post by: Carol Anne on February 20, 2012, 04:00 PM
This always seems to be the place to come for book suggestions!
I'm looking for works of fiction about daughters looking after their aging mothers.
All suggestions welcome!
Thanks in advance. :)

Soooo...YA novels where the mother is sick? Or adult novels where an adult woman is taking care of her aging mother?

Mercy Lily is about a girl taking care of her mother who is dying of cancer.

Still Alice is an adult novel about a woman with early onset Alzheimer's, from her pov, but near the end her girls start helping her out.

Ah yes, Irises is two sisters who care for their mother who is in a persistant vegetative state.
