Time for a memoir book review! This time I have A Mother’s Tears by Dre Carlan.
This book is more an autobiography as I believe that the author and his mother are both still alive but this book details their lives together and the struggles that they have gone through. They had to survive immigration to a new country, dealing with multiple bouts of cancer and drug/alcohol problems. But they endured it all together and this book was a great way to show that.
Family is very important and this is a good way to capture just how much so. I did find that it got repetitive a bit with the going in circles and falling back on bad habits which is realistic but I think the book could benefit from being a little bit shorter. That being said, it was truthful and from the heart and I really liked that.
Book Rating: 3/5
