Synopsis

'My mother wanted me to be a nice boy. I didn't let her down. I don't smoke, drink or mess around with women.' Julian Clary Why ever don't children take 'because I said so' to heart? It would certainly save everyone a lot of time and energy. But then we would miss out on all the wonderful bits of wisdom and passionate concern that often follow this statement. Let's face it, most of us would have to admit - somewhat begrudgingly - that it is our mothers who really know best 99.9 per cent of the time. And if we are smart enough to listen, we maybe just learn a few things. Mum Is Always Right gathers together the wisest and most memorable words ever said by, and about, the women who have held our hands along the obstacle course of life. At turns heart-warming and inspiring, humorous and profound, this little gem of a book makes the perfect gift for any mother or grandmother. Patricia Harris's writing appears frequently in the Boston Globe and she is author of, amongst other titles, Romantic Days & Nights in Boston and 1001 Greatest Things Ever Said About Massachusetts. 'To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.' Maya Angelou
