Publisher Comments:

In this moving and poignant collection of short stories by a broad and vibrant group of American women writers, mothers and daughters describe their conflicts and consolations, their trusts and mistrusts, their loves and hates. In some stories, a mother sacrifices and struggles in order to provide her daughter with the opportunities she herself had been denied. In others, mothers and daughters share a renewed awareness of women’s dependence on one another for survival. This multicultural collection of short stories written between the 1840s and the 1990s explores an ancient relationship with fresh vision and insight. Utilizing a range of short story genres and incorporating diverse perspectives, these stories explore the maternal bonds -between women and investigate the practice of family, exposing the complicated, bittersweet truths of women’s intergenerational relationships.

Synopsis:

An expanded and updated collection of short stories that explores the complex relationship between mothers and daughters.

Synopsis:

Stories accross a generation.
