My Mother the Man-Eater by Tracy Krauss is the story about Joleen, the forty-four year old mother of five grown children. As the title suggests, she is looking for a man, but each man she becomes interested in ends up being interested in one of her daughters. Thrown into the mix is Joleen’s ex-husband who is out to make her life miserable. Joleen’s daughters have their own flaws and troubles and life is full of drama and tension. It is hard to imagine that despite all the troubles, God is able to make his presence known and Joleen is finally able to accept his love as the love she has been searching for all along.
When I first saw the title of this book, I started to keep going past it. My Mother the Man-Eater did not sound like the type of book I would want to read if I was just judging by the title. But then I recognized Tracy Krauss’s name as a Christian author, so I gave the book a closer look. I’m glad I did too because this is actually a terrific book. At an intimidating 555 pages, My Mother the Man-Eater is a story full of action, drama, suspense, family issues and the unfailing love of God. The length of this book works because it is such a complex and real story and it never feels rushed, nor does it ever feel slow. The pages flew by and I was thoroughly engrossed in this book about characters who were very real and believable. My Mother the Man-Eater is a definite winner, a truly excellent book. I was very impressed by Tracy’s writing and her careful crafting of this complex and moving story.
