I would recommend this book to any woman that has lost their mother. Absolutely FANTASTIC !
Many of the feelings and thoughts I have had over the years I have pushed back down feeling that they were twisted or in some way wrong. Reading in this book that many other women have had the same feelings and thoughts has validated mine and helped me to face them head on.
I feel that this book would be an excellent tool to aid women who are trying to address and work through the loss of their mother at a relatively young age. It also covers the relationships we have with our fathers, siblings and step families plus future relationships with partners and the complications which may arise there.
It is a book I am and will continue to use, as I face up to the sad reality of my past.
The three stars only reflect that I did not get out of it what I wanted from it, I still think it will be very helpful to a bereaved daughter.
If there has to be a definitive book of this genre, then this is the one and should be read by daughters of any age, young or old. Perhaps one day, someone will write its' companion "Fatherless Sons".
