A Mother of Sons is a collection of poetry
with the unique ability to connect with the reader regardless of whether or not they consider themselves a "poetry lover." Jayne Jaudon Ferrer's poetry speaks to the heart of the reader,
using wonderful images of daily life that are so clear the reader can see and feel the small life moments that the poet describes.
In her delightful book of verse, Jayne Jaudon Ferrer captures those small moments that make being a mother of sons magical. Mothers who have shared their lives with young boys will smile and nod in agreement at the honesty of her poetry. It is the small, everyday things that make up the whole of our lives. Ferrer's observant details describe motherhood in pieces, like a patchwork quilt that when put together makes up a beautiful tapestry of life.
Ferrer's poem titles nearly speak for themselves. "Attack of the Diapered Viking" will have you laughing before you even get to the meat of the poem. "About Sundays," "Student Driver," and "Chore Wars" take you through the milestones of growing up and parenting. This is what being a mother of sons is truly about.
Her truthful poetry follows the small actions of her
children from infancy to adulthood and every step between. Whether you have infant sons or grown sons, you will enjoy her beautifully crafted words and the honestly that can only come from a true mother of sons.
