Synopsis

The Mothers is a surprising story about young love, a big secret in a small community - and the things that ultimately haunt us most. It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, 17-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance - and the subsequent cover-up - will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth.

Staff Choice

With this tender and engaging debut, Brit Bennett explores friendship, desire and - most importantly - love, and how the abundance, lack or misplacing of it shapes us as women. It doubles as a study of modern black women's motherhood and the female body, their life choices, what’s expected of them and the profound connection between women and their place in society.
