Reviews - What do customers think about Motherhood With Laughter And Tears (Large Print)?
Abysmal writing and editing . . . preachy and axe grinding. May 30, 2007
While my heart certainly goes out to this woman -- after all, no parent should suffer the horrendous heartache of losing a child -- it seems that writing is not her best event. Staci should probably stick to her day job and leave writing to the professionals and those with truly entertaining stories to tell.
The stories contained within the covers of this book are largely the benign tales discussed by a coffee-klatch gaggle of old ladies at their weekly Mahjong tournaments. Nothing is particularly unusual or riveting. Sadly, the writing style is choppy and tends to jump from topic to topic without completing the thought.
Worst of all is the evident animosity this woman feels toward her in-laws for reasons which are not explained in the book. This attitude directly contradicts the writer's attempt at presenting God's Word in little "Moral Of The Story" type snippets at the conclusion of each chapter, leaving the reader with a distinct taste of hypocrisy.
Bottom line - save your money and your time as this book is worthy of neither.
Remember when your kids were toddlers? Nov 9, 2005
This a great book for Mom's to read. It made me remember many times when my daughter as a toddler did the cutest or craziest things. It fills your heart with warmth and laughter. It would make a great gift for any mother or grandmother. It reminds us that God loves us much more than we love our children.
