Back Cover:

The mother-daughter bond is one of the most rewarding--and baffling--reltionships a woman may ever have. Books abound on the parenting of children, but little has been published on mothers' connections with their grown daughters. That complex maternal relationship is explored here, in Friends for Life, a much-needed resource written by mothers for mothers.

Drawn on the guidance of psycholagy professionals, Susan Jonas and Marilyn Nissenson interviewed over one hundred other mothers, asking them about their role as mothers, about their communication with their daughters, about their own needs, and about the issues of independence and support. The result is a wonderfully rich, intensely personal, and nonjudgmental study on mother-daughter relations, one that reveals practical ways for mothers to build lifelong friendships with their daughts.
