As in, Mothers In literature. As I explained in my previous post, I realised recently how few mothers who have great characters are present in fiction. In fact, how few mothers there are at all let alone decent ones.

An evil domineering mother, even, would do, though I wouldn’t be using them as a role model.

Here are the first four awesome Mums we could think of. More to follow soon!
