This is an excellent read! I excitedly felt like I knew Mildred Peacock and her family. I became lost in the story of MAMA aka Mildred Peacock! Everyone knows a Mildred Peacock or was a Mildred Peacock at some point in their lives. I would definitely recommend this book. And I plan on reading it again soon!
