A Mother's Love

There is so much that a mother will do for their children,and this story will bring out just how much. During a time when employment for women was limited, Alma Dawson is faced with a choice to help her daughter out that may ruin her reputation and cost her her self worth. After listening to this book, it made me stop and think about how difficult decisions are made all the time in the name of love, and situations cannot always be judged from the surface. John I. Jones is able to pack quite a few issues in this well written novella, from morality to love. It's a book that will make you think and appreciate the true depth of a parent's love and how love can stem from all kinds of circumstances. With narration by Susan Marlowe, the story is brought to life with decision and emotion. Her storytelling is touching.

boring and uninspired

Luckily a very short book, I was very happy when it was over. It wasn't clear to me what the author intended to tell: The fact that mothers really do everything for the welfare of their child has been much better staged numerous times.
The narration was annoying: I have rarely had to struggle through such a bored performance.
