Inhaltsangabe: Celebrate the life passages shared only between mothers and daughters in this uniquely moving collection.
Mothers and Daughters reveals the full breadth and depth of the mother-daughter bond as only poetry can. From pregnancy to toddlerhood, adolescence to leaving home, grandmotherhood and beyond, and every passage in between, this collection captures the voices of mothers and daughters as they write about the most moving moments of their times together.
Honest, inspiring, joyful, and reflective, the full range of women?s voices has been captured here: the inexplicable joy of a mother holding her baby girl, a mom witnessing the first grown-up tears of her adolescent girl, a mother watching her daughter walk down the aisle, a ten-year-old trying to explain to her mom why she hates broccoli, and a daughter saying good-bye to her mother in her new dorm room. All the poetry, selected by bestselling author June Cotner, is accessible and beautifully crafted, alternating poems that will move any mother or daughter to tears with others that will make her laugh out loud?and all of which will deepen the reader?s understanding and appreciation of this unique bond as no self-help book ever could.
The perfect gift for mother or daughter, this is a book that women will want to revisit and share for years to come.
Vom Autor: MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS: A POETRY CELEBRATION was simply a joy to create. The selections in this book are a result of years of collecting poems that touched me emotionally because they so accurately reflect my feelings as a mother, daughter, and granddaughter. This book has turned out to be a delightful collection of extraordinary poetry that celebrates the experience of being a mother and daughter during every phase of life--from birth through old age. MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS honestly displays the mother-daughter relationship through poetry. From pregnancy to toddlerhood, adolescence to leaving home, grandmotherhood and beyond, and every passage in between, this connection captures the voices of mothers and daughters as they write about their captivating times together. Many of the poets in this compilation are award-winning, but I have also included some lesser-known-poets who write with incredible ability and insight. My hope is that readers will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for this unique bond women share.
