On realising that her mother was seriously ill, Elma van Vliet sat down and wrote The Mother's Book, a collection of questions that would allow her to find out who her mother really was. She wanted to learn what she had been like as a girl, her childhood memories, what her dreams had been at 18, who she had fallen in love with first, how she had felt about the birth of her child ...
Based on an old Dutch tradition of personalised memoirs, this book is one that every girl should give to her mother - a gift to be shared for life.
With illustrations, poems and stories to inspire you, this book asks all the questions you need to discover your mother's real story - all those questions that you will regret not having asked. Don't let the opportunity pass to find out the story that matters most.
First published in Holland where it sold 100,000 copies, 'The Mother's Book' has gone on to sell 250,000 worldwide.
