Things I Want My Daughters to Know
When Barbara realizes time is running out, she writes letters to her four daughters, aware theyll have to manage without her. Take Lisa, in her 30s but incapable of making a commitment, or Jennifer, trapped in a stale marriage and buttoned up so tight she could burst.While 20-something Amanda is the traveller, always distanced from the rest of the family. And Hannah, only a teenager, is about to be parted from the mother she adores. But by drawing on the wisdom in Barbaras letters, the girls might just find a way to cope with their loss.
