How far will a mother go for her child? In Vanessa Hua’s “River of Stars,” a mother’s love carries her across the ocean and then some, all in the name of protecting her baby. In Lydia Kiesling’s “The Golden State,” a mother takes her young child on a road trip that defies the conventions of the genre. In “We Live for the We,” Dani McClain explores the power and responsibility of her own love as a new mother to a Black child in America. These three authors explore the voracious worry, stubborn hope, and deep love of 21st century motherhood.
