A Mother of Sons  
By Jayne Jaudon Ferrer

    Ferrer has crafted a small volume of poems that uniquely express the experience of being the mother of sons. Through her use of everyday words and situations, she has produced a book of poems that are accessible to a wide variety of readers. She chronicles the great love, pride, heartbreak, anxiety, and exhaustion of raising boys to manhood.

   This book will surely be a delight for mothers with sons, whether they find themselves nodding their heads in agreement or they learn about situations to expect farther down the line. Ferrer’s simple yet genuine style gives life to the experiences she portrays and will easily draw readers into the world of motherhood.
