The Mothers is a surprising story about young love, a big secret in a small community – and the things that ultimately haunt us most. It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, 17-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother’s recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor’s son. They are young; it’s not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance – and the subsequent cover-up – will have an impact that will impact all three.
I really enjoyed how this was written. The main character decided she did not want a baby as her career comes first. You should NOT revolve your life around a man you love. They are apart of your life, does not mean you use seeing and spending so much time with them as your only hobby.
Aubrey miss-goody-too-shoes was delightful to begin with however as she began to age she was so obsessed with her husband and seen him as her only priority which was pathetic as a woman because you should not revolve your life around anyone. Have goals and a life outside of your husband as well.
It is very demeaning for any person to have one person as their entire world, yes they can mean a lot to you (including babies) however they are not your entire world as that is not your entire purpose as a person to love and care for one being, your main priority is yourself.
I loved the main character as they developed in many ways. The way this was written was authentic and real, showing the types of women out there and how it can be a blame game on both sides.
