Mildred Pierce by James M. Cain



Review:

Written well, paints a realistic portrayal of a woman’s struggle for success during the depression era.

This story gives me thoughts of a previous read novel Revolutionary Road by Yates one that also was adapted into big screen well. They really are both of similar tones.

A decline of the family structure, loss of possessions dear to them in this world, a really heart warming and life learning story.
Is there more light at the end of the tunnel for the main protagonist Mildred?
You are taken through the to and fro of a mother-daughter relationship.
Can Mildred give her kids the right upbringing financially and emotionally?
She certainly has a lot of determination and love but it’s not a one sided coin there’s the negative forces around this enduring woman
