Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. Today, I thought I'd just give a quick nod to my favorite mother in a Romance novel and that would be none other than Gwen Goodnight from the Jennifer Crusie novel FAKING IT.
Gwen has raised a great group of daughters, of course, they're all bent, but great none-the-less. I love how Gwennie shows her aggressions through sharp white teeth in her paintings, quilts, and samplers. I love Gwen's saying - "If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to be a horrible warning." I love her sampler that says, "When Eve ate the apple Her knowledge increased But God liked dumb women So Paradise ceased."
I love how she was going to settle for a muffin in what she thought was the best move for her family, but how she finally comes to her senses and takes the possible doughnut. Most of all, I just love her entire family.
Who are some of your favorite literary moms? Why do you like them so much.
Happy Mother's Day! I'm off to spend it with the kiddos.
