Conversations with Mom
Conversations with Mom brought me to my knees . . . touching, hysterically funny and oh so wise . . . With whimsy, wisdom and wild abandon, we fall in love . . . A book that we all need, for we all need mentors and moms as we enter that age of the elder ourselves, and simply don't know what to do.

I loved the authenticity in every page, the way humor was so well balanced with sadness, guilt and longing. The ending in particular made me both cry and smile. Highly recommended to anyone looking to explore themselves at deeper levels through an intelligent, witty and really great read.

…distinctively feisty voice … We should all have such mothers.
Betsy took me on a journey with wit and insight, questioning each step of the way. I was compelled to join her in her imaginative but humble search for understanding of our humanness and frailty. Her humor helped me to keep going and shrug off any resistance or weariness on the climb. [Susan Trott’s] The Holy Man would have recognized her, I'm sure, and asked her to tea.
Melodie Somers, Coach: Theatre & Psychoanalysis
Funny, engaging, clever, insightful, and healing. Betsy and her mom interact with a unique brand of love and humor while discussing life, death, and everything in-between. Although the details are personal, the basic issues are familiar to everyone. Easy to read and easy to cherish, this is an eloquent book that speaks to the deepest levels of moving through family dysfunction and opening

This little book is a treasure. There are nuggets of wisdom in these pages that had me laughing, and at times almost crying, as I saw reflections of my own experience, and found new ways to view them. Whatever your own mother-daughter relationship is or was, this very personal story will open your eyes and your heart in many ways.
Melinda Hopkins, Life Coach
Conversations with Mom courageously challenges the pathos and convictions of an inner voice familiar to us all, and comes out on top. Taking nothing for granted, with humor and insight, the author explores the questions that make a thinking person tick. I enjoyed reading this book!

I started reading at breakfast time and couldn't stop. I felt irritated that I had to stop for a bit to get ready for my regular tennis game (which I love). But I did finish it before my tennis partner arrived. What a riot and what wisdom!!! Your conversations were real, wise, funny and, as a pastor I found them so theologically sound. I just bought three more books to share with friends and wished I had the $ to buy more—but I'll be recommending it to all of my friends.
