Having lost my own mother a couple of years before I had my children, I am amazed how little there seems to be written about the legacy of this loss and how it carries on down through the generations. This book is a very good companion in those lonely moments of motherhood when the loss of one's own mother is most keenly felt. Thoroughly recommended.
it's a very positive book that made me smile at times when recognizing familiar patterns. So while there is sadness, it is very constructive, realistic and grounded. The author shares her own experiences and research she has done with many mothers over different circumstances.
I would definitely recommend it.
