In the tradition of Passages and My Mother, My Self, this  unique, personal, and ground-breaking New York Times best-seller -- the first of its kind -- explores the profound pain of mother loss among women and is available here for the  first time in paperback. "When my mother died, I knew no woman my age who had experienced mother loss. I felt utterly and irrevocably alone. In  college, where new friends knew only as much about me as I was willing to reveal, I told few people my mother had died.

I searched the university  library and local bookstores for writings about  mother loss. In each book I found about mother-daughter relationships, I quickly flipped ahead to the  chapter about a mother's death, but discovered  they all assumed the reader would be in her forties or fifties when her mother dies. I was eighteen."  --excerpt from Motherless  Daughters.

Not only for motherless  daughters, but for all women who want to better  understand the mother/daughter relationship, this  beautifully written work inspired an Anna  Quindlen column; appeared in the New York Times, Ingram,  Barnes & Noble, and San Francisco best-seller  lists; and received an extraordinary amount of  media attention including a feature on The Today  Show.
