Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Within a society that long considered "lesbian motherhood" a contradiction in terms, what are the experiences of lesbian mothers today? In this illuminating book, lesbian mothers tell their stories in their own words--how they became mothers; how they see their relationships with their children, relatives, lovers and friends; and how they deal with threats to custody.

Book News Annotation:

Draws extensively on interviews to portray what life is like for lesbian mothers and how they deal with child care, friends and lovers, finances, and threats to custody.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Includes bibliographical references (p. 209-223) and index.
