Excellent reflections on author's honest search for her identity. Can be very emotional for women.
A deeply felt and provocative search for the phantoms between monthers and daughters.
Examines the first, most lasting - and most crucial - tie of every woman\'s life, and shows ow, in all the passages of a woman\'s life - with men. with other women, on the job, and with her own daughters - every woman can begin to change the shildhood patterns of the mother/daughter bond, and become the vital, independent, fully sexual woman she wants to be.
This book, yet older was very helpful for me.
it examines the first most lasting and most curcial tie of every womans life-with men,with other women, and with her own daughters, to help you begin to change the childhood patterns of the mother/daughter bond, and become the vital,independent woman .
A Daughter's Search for Identity. A best seller in 1977, deals with timeless relationships, and personal growth through a life span. Mothers may love their children, but not necessarily love them! Chapters are Mother Love, A Time to be Close, A Time to Let Go, Body Image, Competition, The Other Girls, Surrogates and Models, Men The Mystery, The loss of Virginity, The Single Years, Marriage The Return of Symbiosis, A Mother Dies A Daughter is born, The cycle repeats. Many reference source notes. This is life span psycholgy in a story form. Every female can relate to sections of it, Men would gain from it. I rate this highly. It's an older book, but not necessarily dated.
I only got through the first few pages. It didn't seem relevant to me.
On my Mt. Toobie Read pile.
Pages are yellowed, but good readable condition.
