Fantasy & Motherhood

Motherhood is challenging at the best of times, but when you’re a character in a fantasy novel it’s near impossible. In Tough Travels, Nicola reminds us of some of the worst and most memorable mothers. The Mists of Avalon is still one of my favourite books. It’s a classic and a dusty yellowing copy sits on my bookshelf with a handdrawn family tree on the back cover. Of all the mothers in Game of Thrones I choose Daenerys, Mother of Dragons.

What mothers come to mind when you think fantasy? Mrs. Weasley?
