MOM OVER MIAMI
When Hannah writes a series of e-mail messages to her sisters about her adventures as a mom, she never expects to see them printed in her hometown newspaper. But "Nacho Mama's House" is a big hit, and Hannah agrees to continue writing regularly. After all, she did major in journalism, even if she didn't finish her degree.
Hannah struggles with inferiority, comparing herself to the moms of her foster son's friends. Can she work through it?
Jones adds a touch of humor to realistically depict the emotions that most moms feel on a regular basis. Hannah's struggles are down-to-earth and will touch hearts. The faith message is slightly lacking, which gives the story a disjointed pace, but the ultimate conclusion is uplifting and joyful. (Jul., 264 pg., $12.95)
