I'm going to go beyond my job description and recommend "A Mother's Tears." Some [of the mother's stories] will tear your heart out.
-Gene Smith Senior editorial writer The Fayetteville Observer

"A Mother's Tears consists of poignant short stories written in the voices of the mothers and grandmothers who raised the boys turned U.S. Soldiers. The other stories, just as poignant, just as heart-breaking, narrate details of the character and the individual spark of the fallen soldiers, the lost 'babies' of the war."
-Toni Walthall, El Dorado News Times

"These are powerful accounts by the mothers of those fallen in Iraq. I defy anyone to read Elliot Gold's moving new book and not tear up."
-Bill Moore, Sacramento Bee
