  • Elizabeth Berg marvels at witnessing her child give birth to her child.
  • Judith Guest confesses her failed attempt to be the perfect grandmother.
  • Jill Nelson grapples with unforeseen mother-daughter tensions.
  • Ellen Gilchrist reveals how grandparenthood has eased her fear of death.
  • Beverly Donofrio makes amends for her shortcomings as a teenage mother.
  • Bharati Mukherjee transcends her Hindu upbringing to embrace her adopted Chinese granddaughters.
  • Mary Pipher deconstructs the role of grandmother in our changing world.

This book is so "right on" and helps a new grandmother (me) realize that everything is not always perfect even if you think YOUR grandbaby IS perfect.Tales of love, desire and sadness all together talking about the role of grandmother- a role that cannot be described or explained until it happens. This is a glorious book!
