Ironically, I've been keeping with the Black History Month theme and I decided to pick up another book by a black author. This time I picked up The Mothers by Brit Bennett. It's a hard book to try to explain, but it does deal with the relationship that daughters have with their mothers especially the result or consequences of a mother that is not present. The book starts off with a secret and it is this secret that keeps the book moving forward. It contains interesting characters and so far I'm really enjoying it!
