The reflections in "Sons and Mothers" delve deep into the often close, but sometimes troubled, relationships that exist between mothers and sons. With remarkable honesty and grace, the contributors tell of the complicated, vulnerable, and inspirational women who formed them, and reveal struggles over faith, unfulfilled dreams, and aging.
Patrick Friesen, Howard Dyck, Josiah Neufeld, and others share their Mennonite roots, but also shed a loving new light on a relationship both timeless and universal--that of mother and son.
With contributions from Paul Tiessen, John Rempel, Josiah Neufeld, Nathan Klippenstein, Byron Rempel, Lukas Thiessen, Christoff Engbrecht, Howard Dyck, Andrew Martin, Lloyd Ratzlaff, Michael Goertzen, Patrick Friesen
