I enjoyed this tale of mother-daughter bonding with its parallel storylines between Kendy and Maisey and Kendy and Carolyn. Kendy longs for a restored relationship with her daughter Maisey and thinks the visit the week before her wedding will provide just the thing. Maisey, though, seems to go out of her way to avoid her mother and to try not to include her in anything wedding related (other than inviting her to attend). Through unintentional meddling by her husband-to-be, a secret that Maisey has been keeping for 9 years is revealed and can finally be dealt with. ( )

I really liked this book and couldn't put it down. I immediately lent it to a friend I knew would love it. In this book there are there is an event that has created a gulf between a mother and daughter. They do not relate well and don't know how to cross the divide. This book shows how complicated relationships can be and the way your actions affect even those you don't expect. Definately a book I would recommend. ( )

I started this book in the morning around 11 and finished by early evening. It was such a good read and very hard to put down. (And I did have to put it down to make lunch and take care of my family.)

The glimpse into the complicated mother/dauhter relationships of two generations broke my heart and left me hopeful. It made me want to call my mother just to chat and then take my teenage daughter out shopping.

We are only human, children of dust, and once we accept that in ourself as well as in those we love, we will sleep in peace. ( )

A bond between a mother and a daughter is a beautiful thing. This book shows how a bond can be broken and how with God's help and forgiveness, which includes forgiving yourself, it can be restored.

A mother and daughter, on the eve of the latter’s wedding, delve into the emotional wounds that keep them apart. Told from alternating points of view, Jackina Stark’s latest, Things Worth Remembering explores the consequences of our actions, and how choices aren’t made in a vacuum. This is a gently and honestly told story about familial fidelity and forgiveness. Stark examines the wounds within families, particularly between mothers and daughters, and does a passable job of sketching her characters. What might have made the story a little better would be to tone down the “sweetness” at times, broaden the story structure, and do away with telling it in the present tense. Stark has the right idea, but only gets so far dealing with inner wounds; the redemptive parts of the story wrap-up a bit tidier than feels realistic to the reader. She could have gone so much deeper. ( )
