Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suzanne Blume has survived two marriages, had a successful career as a lawyer, put two children through college, and is enjoying her first sexual relationship in more than ten years. She is not pleased when her older daughter Elena loses yet another job and moves back home, but, she has to admit, life at forty-nine has yielded some unexpected pleasures. Then one day a messenger appears in court to announce that her mother, a woman of legendary independence, whom Suzanne feels has never truly accepted her, has been rushed to the hospital. Intertwining the lives of three generations of contemporary women, Marge Piercy brings her exceptional talents to bear on some of the most pressing questions facing us today. How do we nurture children who cannot possibly live up to the dreams we've created for them? How do we learn to become a family again after years of carving out independent lives? THREE WOMEN is a novel as riveting as it is real, leading us to a place where some of our worst fears meet fresh opportunity and a new chance at real love.

Synopsis:

Suzanne Blume has known success and disappointment in equal measure. A respected lawyer who survived two marriages and put two children through college, she now faces the disquieting prospect of her wayward older daughter moving back home. But more troubling still is the news that her mother, a woman of legendary independence who has never truly accepted her daughter nor approved of her choices, has been felled by age and illness. And, for the first time in her life, she needs Suzanne's help.

Intertwining the lives of three generations of contemporary women, master storyteller Marge Piercy plunges into the deepest, most elemental basics of life — love, aging, illness, and death — and emerges with a brave, compassionate exploration of the volatile ground between mothers and daughters.
