Greenaway's approach to the mother-daughter relationship tenderly reveals both sides of the coin. As a woman who lost her mother at a young age, I found her treatment of mothers, present past and future, sensitive and insightful. I also loved her story telling the multi layered levels of meaning. It's a wonderful, moving book. Daughters and mothers of all cultures will enjoy it. T. Buddshow moreby Tania Budd
Finding Artemisia is a fine read. The story of a young girl struggling with anorexia is skilfully interwoven with ancient indigenous wisdom. Fundamentally it's a journey about healing, acceptance and self love. Great reading.show moreby Jane W
What a book! Thank you for writing this celebration of woman, in her strengths and vulnerabilities, spiritual and earthly, young and old, ancient and modern. There are so many little gems in there that resonate. Somehow this book was able to slide under my rational, controlling mind and take me back to places that leave a lump in my throat and a quiet ache in my chest. Thank you for sharing your gift with us. Loved it!show moreby Inez
