Mothers aren't always portrayed as the perfect, loving, nurturing type. In my first novel, All My Hopes and Dreams, the villain is the mother of the hero, and becomes the mother-in-law of my unsuspecting, perfectly groomed, proper heroine, Miss Cynthia Harrington. Wow, is she in for a surprise when she arrives hundreds of miles from her home across Texas with her new husband, Ricardo Romero. Immediately, she learns her mother-in-law Felicitas hates her entire being. Felicitas made a good evil mother, even making her husband and son miserable. But as in most of my books, I must find the good side of our dear Felicitas.
In Texas Promise, Jo is the product of a rape when her mother, Marilee, was only fifteen. Marilee was abandoned and isolated by her father, because he was ashamed of her pregnancy, even though she had been a victim. Marilee learned to be a good mother all by herself, because she, herself, had been raised by only her father. Marilee is the epitome of The Good Mother, protecting, nurturing, and loving her child, and Jo in return adores her mother. Even though she acted strong and capable, Marilee's heart and mind were scarred, causing her to feel unlovable and damaged. Buck Cameron, though, taught her to love not only herself, but him, as well.
