Easement rights with regard to deeded land

Q: My mother deeded land to my brother who lived in a mobile home on her property. She told him to figure out how much land he wanted. With the help of his brother-in-law, he drew up the deed and my mother signed it, leaving her with one acre and the house. He included the only driveway to both homes on his property, leaving my mother’s property without deeded access to a public road. We think he did this to prevent someone from eventually buying my mother’s house. My mother’s will provides that her home will go to her four children when she dies? What happens if my brother dies before my mother? My mother has lived in her home for over 41 years. Does she have easement rights anyway? Is there anything we can do?
