    It’s true everyone has a mother! He quotes Proverbs 31 “who can find me a virtuous woman? For her price is far above Rubies! Mr. Pratt pays the highest tribute to his mother and tells of the many experiences of what made him who he is today is greatly influenced by his mothers love .

    I hope I was half the Mother this woman was. I also hope to follow the advice in this book on how to make a great marriage. Hopefully we have many more years together.

    I expected this to be more of a tribute to motherhood in general like All Moms Go To Heaven, which I enjoyed. Instead, it was a collection of memories from the author's life. Some of them were only loosely related to his mom. It might be more interesting for someone of the author's generation because the memories would be nostalgic. However, it didn't really touch me in any way. I expected this to be more of a tribute to motherhood in general like All Moms Go To Heaven, which I enjoyed.

    I admit I couldn't keep reading. I couldn't make myself feel interested. Got to the third chapter and asked myself what the point was in reading it. Couldn't find it. My original intention was to 1) increase my appreciation for my own mother and 2) look for some clues to being a better mother myself. It didn't really happen. I admit I couldn't keep reading.

    I read this for one of my book clubs but found it very poorly written. The book is the reflections of James Pratt on his upbringing and the influence his mother had on him. Though he had some interesting stories and insights, he failed to convey them in a meaningful way. I felt the book was shallow and a little mushy. It is a fast read and only 100 pages but not worth the time.

    This was a quick feel good book. It would be rewarding to read so many good memories & complements written by your own child. As mothers we work hard & hope for positive outcomes. This mother was successful.

    It was sweet. Another book club pick. I found his thoughts interesting but didn't really agree entirely with all of his conclusions. It was sweet. Another book club pick. I found his thoughts interesting but didn't really agree entirely with all of his conclusions.

    This was a great book. It made me think about my own mom and me now as a mom. I am reflecting the traditions and values I am instilling in my children--these are so important!
