"If your mother isn't the sort to be appeased by chocolates or a bunch of daffs, turn to Everyman's Library. . . . The venerable imprint has steadily built a good list of themed short story anthologies in recent years--ghost tales, detective, even golf--all hard-backed and prettily packaged. This timely release is a collection dedicated to motherhood. . . . The range is good, including stories written over a hundred years ago as well as modern work, and they cover all aspects of the mother bond." --The Guardian
