Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou is one book that I could not put down. Because it s a light read, the language is easy to follow and it has a very welcoming tone. I especially enjoyed the humorous way that Ms. Maya narrated her story. I could almost hear her read the book out loud to me. (That is how much I love Maya Angelou’s works.)
The most prominent theme is the mother daughter relationship. It especially focused on the journey to repair a broken relationship. This book has Ms. Maya growing from calling her mother “Lady” till she is able to call her “Mother” without reservations. Minor themes are such as; redefining family, marriage and other forms of relationships. In a very minor way, it talks about mental health and gratitude.

I almost never read a book in one sitting. Mostly because I do a lot of reflective thinking. Which involves thinking about the implied meanings , different voices and of course, I query authorial intrusion. Do not be troubled though, my mind is a weird place (ha-ha). It is kinda chaotic too. But somehow, I read Mom & Me & Mom from cover to cover in a few short hours.
In my opinion, women of all ages should read this book. It gives a lot of insight on what a mother daughter relationship is like.
