The special bond between moms & daughters

Because I Love Her reveals why mothers and daughters have a special bond despite the many complex emotions inevitably associated with the relationship: anger, resentment, competition and, of course, love. Karen Joy Fowler, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Susan Wiggs, Sheila Kohler, Joyce Maynard, Catherine Newman and Ann Hood are just a few of the accomplished writers-all mothers with daughters-who have contributed to this new book. Readers will be introduces to daughters struggling with all kind of moms and women with vastly different experiences --- from women with mothers who were mentally ill or absent and from those who had the courage to make peace with their mothers along the way.

This book is destined to become a timeless classic for millions of mothers with daughters and offers some worthwhile lessons:

  • Celebrate the similarities and differences between yourselves!

  • Come to grips with that old saying "Been there, done that." Daughters can benefit from mom's experiences.

  • Don't be afraid to ask. Share your life.... You never know how many chances you have left.

  • Confront rivalries that exist between you and avoid repeating them.

  • Deal with emotional legacies inherited from mother to daughter.

  • Understand that biggest part of learning to be a mother and a daughter is to forgive yourself for your own foolish blunders and to echo that same forgiveness to the ones you love.
