Description:

Ask any woman whose mother has died and she will tell you that she is irrevocably altered, as profoundly changed by her mother's death as she was by her mother's life. And although a mother's mortality is as inevitable as nightfall, no other book has addressed the lasting effects of this incalculable loss. First published more than a decade ago and now available in this updated edition, Motherless Daughters is still the book that women of all ages look to for understanding and comfort when their mothers die, and it is the book that they continue to press into each other's hands.
