Not an easy book for me to read, just couldn't connect with this one. This was my first book by this author. I was a bit disappointed, but maybe the timing for reading this one was off. I didn't finish the book.
Four generations of women united by a keen, honest eye in a deliciously long novel.
I loved this book, couldn't put it down, as I am too of Polish descent and could recognize some of the events and terms.....but the ending turned me off. I thought her writings were feministic and then later found out that she must have been an early feminist writer in her day.
I loved this book! It beautifully explores the struggle of a Polish Catholic immigrant couple to make a life for themselves in the US. It explores the mother's relationship with her American-born daughter, and the daughter's struggle to assimilate these two parts of her life and heritage.
From the author of the groundbreaking bestseller THE WOMEN'S ROOM: an impassioned story that explores the primal, inescapable bond between mother and daughter. It is the story of Stacy Stevens, who as an internationally famous photographer, has a life of independence and excitement. But suddenly at forty, she finds herself emotionally destitute, forced to acknowledge how her life has been shaped by the same disappointments and fears that shaped the lives of her mother and grandmother. Now, she must forge a new peace with her mother, with her children, and, most importantly, with herself.
This audio production of HER MOTHER'S DAUGHTER resonates with all the feeling and intensity of Marilyn French's words.
Top-notch novel from a woman's unique point of view, by an author who is well known (Marilyn French - "The Women's Room" - and writes exceedingly well.
