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.
