Motherless Daughters

by Edelman, Hope

Although a mother's mortality is inevitable no book has discussed the profound lasting and far reaching effects of this loss until Motherless Daughters, which became an instant classic. More than twenty years later, it is still the go-to book that women of all ages look to for comfort, help, and understanding when their mother dies. Building on interviews with hundreds of mother loss survivors, Edelman's personal story of losing her mother, and recent research in grief and psychology, Motherless Daughters reveals the shared experiences and core identity issues of motherless women:Why the absence of a nurturing hand shapes a woman's identity throughout her lifespanHow present day relationships are defined by past lossesHow a woman can resolve past conflicts and move toward acceptance and healingWhy grief really is not a linear passage but an ongoing cyclical journeyHow the legacy of mother loss shifts with the passage of time
