This is an emotional book - cancer, domestic violence, social anxiety, infertility, & substance abuse. On the positive side, there is a strong mother/daughter bond, personal growth, and unlikely friendships. It is a good book, but because of all of the issues covered, will probably hit close to home for many readers.

This read is a love story of a mother and daughter. There are some moments that are triggering, but they are crafted in the story in a way that they are not traumatizing.

Today‘s Prompt: Oh Mother

A mother's love is constant no matter what, and Alice definitely has a mother's never-ending love for her daughter Zoe.

Get out the tissue box as you deal with the characters‘ feelings and make them your own.

I loved this book but boy was it heart wrenching. Such a good story of love between mother and daughter and friendship. I have to admit that I wanted a little more. This is the third book by this author that I‘ve read. I‘m looking forward to her next book being released in April.

This was an emotional read for me and made me ponder what women could accomplish if we allowed each other to share our burdens instead of going it alone...

4.5 STARS - An emotional and compulsive read about what it means to be a mother, daughter and friend during some of life's toughest moments. Hepworth's writing and characterizations keep getting better and better. Keep the Kleenex handy, folks. This is one of the rare books that made me cry.

This book does a beautiful job of honestly portraying the effects of cancer on both the patient and his or her loved ones. Also covering subjects like anxiety, abuse, love, and family, The Mother's Promise has something for just about everyone. As someone who suffers from anxiety, I could easily relate to many of Zoe's experiences. I've also lost loved ones to cancer, so I understood the fear surrounding Alice's diagnosis.

I'm loving this book. My heart breaks for the four, diverse main characters, each with her own tragedies and issues. I have my Kleenex ready since I suspect this will be a tear jerker.

I met Alice, a single mom who is facing a serious health crisis. Zoe is a teenager, suffering with crippling and embarrassing social anxiety. Kate is a compassionate nurse who is battling infertility. Sonja, a social worker, skilled in the art of helping others, is struggling with changes that need to occur in her life. As Alice, Zoe, Kate and Sonja made choices, they sprouted wings of confidence which led to extraordinary outcomes. Loved it!
