And thus, we begin another book. This time around, we are reading You Are Not Like Other Mothers by Angelika Schrobsdorff. Due to a logistical foul-up, I am only just getting my hands on this book today. Garrr! Foiled again!
I have heard wonderful things about YANLOM. The reviews I’ve come across are mostly positive, but there is definitely a spectrum of feelings about this memoir of the author’s mother. The story takes place from the 1920’s through the two World Wars, and onwards. I love reading about the early part of the 20th century, especially in Europe. I also have an interest in reading about the relationships between mothers and daughters, so this book has really got me excited!
This week we are reading up to page 130, and then meeting back next Friday to discuss and share our thoughts. Swing by here in the evening, and join our lovely friends at The Duck and The Owl for their take on the book.
