Moms take the brunt of a lot of our anger, blame and mocking. Plus, you won’t friend her on Facebook. Pay her back for all the good she has done for you with the touching new book, “My Mom, Style Icon,” by Piper Weiss (Chronicle Books, $18.95).
This book sprang from Weiss’ blog about her stylish mother that inspired others to submit stories about their mothers. Like with Weiss, many women found discovering who their mother was before she was a mother was a revelation and opened up conversations they’d never been able to have before.
