Regardless of the circumstances of each individual's life, every life begins with a mother. Throughout your life, you may have many different relationships with your mother-or perhaps you may have none at all. For the most part, it's safe to say that all of us have questions or perhaps just something important we'd like to say to our mothers.
In A Letter to My Mother: Letters from Daughters Full of Love, Hope, Despair, Regret, and Forgiveness, women from various backgrounds and regions of the United States each write deep, heartfelt letters to their mothers. Each letter is a real, personal attempt at resolution between the roles of mother and daughter.
In this collection of heart-to-heart communications-meant to inspire the reader to address his or her own unspoken words-the authors raise a number of points, issues, and praise with respect to their relationships with their mothers. From positive friendships to bitter abandonment, each woman bares her heart completely in her own letter to her mother.
