Review quote

"Intelligent, brave, consoling, and wise, "Motherless Daughters" is an essential and illuminating must-read for anyone who has lost a mother or loves someone who did." - Cheryl Strayed, author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Wild" "This book has helped me heal my heart. Finding myself in the stories of other motherless daughters let me know I was not alone. If you have lost your mom--this book is essential." - Rosie O'Donnell ""Motherless Daughters" sheds light on an experience--the loss of a mother at any age, but especially at a young age--that is by definition lonely and shadowy. Through thoughtful, in-depth research, and with her companionable voice, Edelman has brought solace to thousands of women over the years, creating a sense of community in the midst of grief." - Meghan O'Rourke, author of "The Long Goodbye"
