All My Mother’s Lovers

Well, All My Mother’s Lovers was a bit of a surprise. Sometimes I need to do more reading about a book before I read the book to know what I am getting into. This one has an impressive start, and, at its heart, is about relationships with parents and LBGTQ issues. “…when Maggie’s mom, Iris, dies in a car crash, Maggie returns home only to discover a withdrawn dad, an angry brother, and, along with Iris’s will, five sealed envelopes, each addressed to a mysterious man she’s never heard of.” Maggie takes it on herself to deliver these envelopes and, in doing so, begins to understand her mother in a way she never had before. While this was an interesting story, it was a bit more graphic than was necessary.
