Overview

Darlene Machtan, author of Conversations With My Mother, shares heartfelt, intimate, and often humorous one-sided conversations with her deceased mother. The topics are so universal that grieving adult children will easily relate and find comfort.

The issues of:

  • carrying on
  • new family responsibility and roles
  • major conflicts among siblings
  • a parent's remarriage and
  • the decline and death of other significant individuals

are all "discussed" between mother and daughter with such honesty and emotion the reader seems to be an integral part of that conversation.

Stories of love, laughter, disagreements, dancing, friendships, and futures will leave readers answering Machtan's question "...or is it only in our family that such stories abound?" with a resounding, "No."
