Mother of My Mother: The Intimate Bond between Generations

by

Mother of My Mother: The Intimate Bond between Generations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Motherless Daughters, Hope Edelman explored the profound and lasting effects of mother loss, as well as her own search for healing.  Now, in her compelling new work, Edelman explores another complex, life-changing relationship, the intricate bond between generations.

Drawing from her own experience and the recollections of over seventy other granddaughters, Edelman explores the three-generation triangle from which women develop their female identities: the grandmother-mother-daughter relationship. With eloquent personal testimony, she demonstrates the vital roles grandmothers have played in their granddaughters' lives, as a source of unconditional love, family values and traditions, and backup parent, the ultimate safety net.

Here are grandmothers in all their glory: The "Benevolent Manipulator", whose love for her family is matched only by her desire for control; The "Gentle Giant", awesome, respected, who possesses a quiet, behind-the-scenes power; The "Autocrat", who rules her extended family like a despot; The "Kinkeeper", the family hub, who offers a sense of cohesion to the extended clan.

With insight and compassion, Edelman probes this unique and emotionally-charged relationship in a book that is a true celebration of an extraordinary bond--and a must read for every woman.

Synopsis:

Drawing from her own experience and the recollections of over 70 other granddaughters, the author explores the effect that three generations of women in a family have on women's identities and demonstrates the vital roles grandmothers have played in their granddaughters' lives.
