An affirming and inspiring tribute to the complexities of mother-daughter relationships—featuring interviews with Alice Hoffman, Whoopi Goldberg, Lily Tomlin, and more
No matter what a woman achieves in her life—no matter how old she gets or whether she herself becomes a mother—she is always and forever a daughter. In this series of interviews, over twenty well-known women reflect on their complicated relationships with their mothers, from wonderful moments of friendship and reconciliation to difficult times marked by addiction, sickness, and death. The result is at once an affirming self-help book, an uplifting tribute to mother-daughter relationships, and a collective memoir that captures the female experience in all its forms.
