Nine moms with forty-three children got together and wrote a book, "Mothering: An Art of the Heart", an honest, upbeat, heartfelt and personal look at the messy and wonderful business of raising children. Liz O'Toole, one of nine moms who co-authored the book "Mothering: An Art of the Heart" will be at Village Bookmarket, 207 East Main St., Palmyra, on Saturday, July 28 at 10:00 AM, for an Author Meet & Greet and Book Signing.

"Mothering: An Art of the Heart" is a collection of short and engaging stories that celebrate family life, written by real mothers about real children. The "nine moms" are professional women with careers in education, health care, art, and ministry. Their children are grown - now with lives and professions and children of their own. In their "reflections from the empty nest", the authors see that the legacy of handing down parenting skills, from mother to daughter, can be disrupted in this day and age by distance, societal values and the sheer busyness of life schedules. The intention of this book is to pass along to the next generation the "Mother Wisdom" that the authors learned from their mothers, grandmothers, other moms, and their own experience. But this book is not just a love letter to their own children: in telling their stories, they hope to inspire all mothers, from brand-new moms to empty-nesters, to recognize their profound value and influence in nurturing strong, healthy families.
