Daughters and Mothers, Mothers and Daughters

“The book is based on Hammer’s interviews with many women of all ages who talk about their past experiences with their mothers and their problems in trying to establish their own identities...Informed commentary ties it all together with a continuous interweaving of these women’s experiences. It blends into a revealing and enlightening picture of the problems of identity women have to cope with at all stages of their lives.

“All women are not mothers but all women are daughters, and even the most traditional woman will be stimulated to reconsider her relationship to her mother and ponder how it has shaped her life.”
--Los Angeles Times
