I'm looking for any recommendations for books about the relationship between mothers and sons?

Louise Jane,

Probably because I'm the mother of a son, I noticed a book with an intriguing (to me) title from several years ago, but I have not read is Raising Cain Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys by Dan Kindlon Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys.

At least I'm starting the ball rolling.

Jen (jenlb) | 51 comments Pat Conroy's Beach Music is heavily centered around the mother/son relationship. Most of his books are, in some way or another. Not necessarily happy, but great reading.
