What My Mother Gave Me - Elizabeth Benedict

Many women writers share their memories of gifts from their mothers and the impact those gifts had on their lives.  I'd hoped for a wider range of experiences; it seems the majority of writers are from privileged backgrounds, East Coast dwellers, which makes the reading seem somewhat self-indulgent.  It could be that they were intended to be more light-hearted and brief than the title led me to believe.  I wouldn't recommend it.
