(PRLEAP.COM) Best friend. Critic. Mentor. Protector. Often, our mother is not just a mother; she is everything that helps us make it through life. That's why losing a mother is like losing a support system-and getting used to a life without our mother is one of the most difficult things to do.

Elizabeth Washington understands what it's like to lose a mother. But her mother's memories are still alive, memories that cause both laughter and tears. "Life's Laughters and Cries" is her attempt to share all that her mother was and all that she meant to Elizabeth.

This book of poems has a powerful theme: love and family. Readers will enjoy being reminded that the most beautiful things in life are often those we already have.
