Overview Imagine small children never having parental supervision or normal food to eat, and being beaten and abused by their own mother. This is the author's true story.
Publishers Description Imagine small children never having parental supervision, never having normal food to eat, and being beaten and abused by their own mother for no good reason. Yes, Mother is how author Margaret Gomez and her siblings had to answer their mother. Eating leftover, discarded food no one wanted was a routine for them. Being cold from never having a coat or sweater to wear on those long walks to school, saving a sibling from near death, and struggling to stay alive, just to wake up and start all over again, was the children's day in, day out lifestyle. This mother disliked her own daughters, and this author has allowed us to see and learn what sometimes hides underneath a polite, pat response?Yes, Mother.

Reviews - What do customers think about Yes Mother?
ABYSMAL (def.) Extremely or hopelessly bad. Oct 16, 2008
This should not be classified as a "Book" and the writer should not be classified as an "Author". 56 pages of pure drivel and self indulgence on behalf of Maragaret Gomez. Full of petty childish complaints not only about her mother but the rest of her family too. Some areas are continually repeated. I can not believe that someone actually published this; and has also published a second "book" by this person. $7.95 is absolute daylight robbery for this product. Shame on retailers for selling it to the public. Don't waste your money.
hire an editor Oct 9, 2008
I, too, thought, "How bad can it be?" Bad. That a publishing house would actually publish this story "as is" JUST FLOORS ME!
even in your own review Sep 29, 2008
"The book is the truth. I wrote it for closer and to heal the pain." Published on May 8, 2006 by Margaret Gomez
This is why an editor is so important. Do you mean you wrote it for closure? This could have been a great book with some help from a professional. It probably would have sold a lot more as well. I really feel for you but if you want to put something out to the consumer, make sure it is checked for consistency and errors.
Also feel cheated... Aug 23, 2008
I saw the same grammatical error as a previous reviewer, and was very disappointed to see that this was not actually a "book", more like an essay, broken into nine chapters.
Also, it is difficult to believe the entire story when there are so many inconsistencies. The most glaring was on page 21, when the author recounts adopting her daughter's baby daughter.
In the second full paragraph on page 21 she wrote: It took a month to decide what to do. [regarding adopting her granddaughter]
In the next paragraph she wrote: We [she and her husband] had to take four months of kinship and childcare classes. The baby was placed in our home after a thorough background check. [A few sentences later, in the same paragraph:] Emily has been with me since she was two weeks old.
How can this be? The fact that the author had four months of kinship and childcare classes, then had to be approved first, would mean the child could NOT have been placed with her within two weeks of birth.
I can understand wanting closure, but don't try to sell your writing exercise as a fully-developed, readable book. It is far from it.
Not what I expected Apr 5, 2008
This book was not well written. It jumped back & forth through time in a disjointed, confusing manner & some topics were repeated over & over.
