Lisa discusses One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle, which is a story that portrays the complex mother-daughter relationship and delves into grief. Katie’s mom, Carole, died, and Katie is devastated because they were best friends. Katie goes on the trip while she’s discovering Italy, and she stumbles upon her mom, Carole, who is suntanned, beautiful and in her 30s.
The New York Times highlights the notion of meeting your mom before she becomes a mom and appreciating her as a person and not just a mom.
