I don't know, 53cm seems "smallish" to me.
maybe it would help if you posted a range of sizes you're looking for, or even better, the size bike your ma rides now or/and her inseam.
There's always the Kona jake iterations, which are available frame-only, the kona sutra is steel, but has disc brakes, and the nashbar X cross frames, which are disc-compatible, aluminium, and pretty inexpensive. Most manufacturers sell frame only, although dedicated cross bikes are less likely to have eyelets than, say, touring frames.
You could always take a gander through the list of 'cross fabricators up above.
