James Patterson’s Romantic Novel with Mother Daughter Insights

By Val Boyko • January 27th, 2011

I’ve just finished reading a book from James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet called “Sundays at Tiffany’s”. It’s a heart warming love story set with a background of a narcissistic mother and talented daughter who wants to be loved, but never feels good enough.

What I liked most was that the daughter continued to love her mother and be kind, despite her  mother’s swings of behavior from ignoring her to being overly controlling. At the end, the mother shares her true self. Through talking about her fears and her sorrows, they are able to come together closer than they have ever been.
Yes I did shed a tear or two!

The moral of this story (like so many!) is that love will find a way.

My message to you and myself is “so let it!”
