Great book; touching and evocative story of mothers and daughters. You grow up thinking you'll never be like your mother, and you'll never treat your own daughter the way you were treated. But history has a strange and sometimes wonderful way of repeating itself!

This would probably be my favorite book by Morsi. There are more layers to this book, than I expected. It is not only mother/daughter relationships, but a pretty real discussion about women's roles and how they have changed over the past 50 yrs. Decisions that one makes are tied to the options available. Characters had depth, with people not being totally good or bad, such is life.

I absolutely loved this book about the relationship between a mother and a daughter and all the trials and tribulations they both go through. It's a story about love, strength, and finding yourself again. Highly recommend it!

Easy read about an interesting mother and daughter. Kind of sad. It's set in McKinney, Dallas and Houston so if you're from there, you might be especially interested.

Great book about mothers and daughters. The 1950's mother and her 1970's daughter disagree about everything... but everyone says they are so alike.
