They shelter us from life's unexpected storms, nurture us into adulthood, and know just when to push us from the nest. Now the creator of the bestselling "Chocolate" series offers up a rich, soulful celebration of motherhood, one that any woman -- mother, daughter, sister, or best friend -- will love. Here are more true stories that capture the essence of what it means to be a woman and that honor the unforgettable experience of mothering, from the heartwarming and hilarious to the bittersweet: a mother sending her child off to school, or down the aisle...a mother who knows just what to say and when to say it -- or keep it to herself...a stand-in mom who passes for the "real thing" with flying colors...a mother whose intuition never fails....You're sure to recognize yourself -- or your own mom -- in the pages of "Chocolate for a Mother's Heart."

I thought this book might be one that only moms could identify with. I'm not a mom myself, but I loved it! The stories are universal, and include something for every taste (just like a box of chocolates!) Some stories are heartwarming, some are funny, some are bittersweet, and some are inspiring. Personally, I enjoy almost anything chocolate and this book is no exception.
