Summary This book brings together the writings of women from various walks of life-authors, artists, academics, and ordinary citizens-to present their experiences of being mothers and daughters. The complex emotional journeys detailed in the touching narratives are heartwarming and provocative. Dedicating this volume to the women who went before and the generations that are yet to come, the contributors abandon their public faces to provide humane, intimate, and compelling real-life narratives. The collection includes true stories on adoptive motherhood, step-mothering, and single-motherhood.
