For the Mothers

Happy Mother's Day, if you celebrate it.
In The Year of the Rabbit, a novel about fate, family and forgiveness readers will encounter a few motherly characters:
  • Marie Fletcher was a caring mother figure despite her struggles with mental health issues and a dark secret;
  • Margaret MacDonald experienced deep guilt and regret that she did not prevent the abuse of her daughter;
  • Jenny Young struggled with supporting her pregnant teen and understanding her husband's disappointment;
  • Amy Young became a teenage mother who learned how to be responsible with the help of her own family and friends;
  • Gio's Mom was the typical doting mother and eventually an exuberant grandmother. 
Excerpt:  While she lay in her mother's casket, young Sera Fletcher pondered life after death

Have a lovely Mother's Day - or make it one for your own Mom.
