Mother Rebecca, a fictional character, is the creation of real person Rebecca Cuevas.
Mother Rebecca is 200 years old, but looks about 29 (give or take 40 years). No actual humans from the Victorian era are still alive today, and there is no face cream on earth that is equal to the wear and tear that would have been caused by 200 years of actual living on the planetary surface. So no, Mother Rebecca is not a real person. But, as a fictional character, she does have real wisdom to share!
Why yes she is, dear. And bless your heart for asking.
As you can imagine, darlings, in the course of her 200 years of (fictional) existence, Mother Rebecca has been married a time or two, or is that fifty-two?
Mother Rebecca is very bad at math, and may have lost count of exactly how many husbands she has had.
But she knows they were all very nice, and she loved them a lot.
What's important is that she has learned about love, and loss, and marriage, and divorce.. and she is ready to share it all with YOU!
Mother Rebecca is older than dirt.
Which is good, because when you have a lot of dirt, you can use it to grow things.
Mother Rebecca has a whole greenhouse of wisdom, where she grows the seeds she has gathered from her 200 years of life experience.
What kinds of seeds are those, you may ask?
Read the book to find out, darlings!
