Published In: United States, 28 February 2006
An instant bestseller in both hardcover and paperback, Hope Edelman's Motherless Daughters explores the myriad ways that losing a mother can affect almost every aspect and passage of a woman's life. First published a decade ago, it is still the book that motherless daughters of all ages look to for understanding and comfort and that they press into each other's hands. Building on interviews with hundreds of mother- loss survivors, this life-affirming book is now newly expanded to reflect the author's personal experience with the continued legacy of mother loss; now married and a mother of young children herself, Edelman better understands how the effects of mother loss change over time and in light of new relationships. A work of stunning courage and honesty, Motherless Daughters is a must read for the millions of women whose mothers have gone, but whose need for healing, mourning, and mothering remains. It is a timeless classic.

5 of 5 Stars! '

This book is a collection of stories of women who have experienced the death of their mother and how it affected them. It includes women of different ages/ The author threads these stories together with information and reflections on this particular type of bereavement. I use this book with women in my work as a grief and bereavement counselor and they have told me that it is comforting to find they are not alone in their emotions and that their reactions are normal.
