Overview

After a mother's death, a daughter embarks on a personal journey of grief and healing. Hope Edelman shared her journey in Motherless Daughters; afterward, she received letters from motherless women all over the world who felt compelled to share their own stories of mother loss. Comforted by the shared experiences that appeared in the book, they wanted to hear more from women like them. Letters from Motherless Daughters was created to fulfill that request, and now, in this updated edition, Hope compiles letters received over the two decades since the publication of her New York Times bestseller.

In their own voices, these daughters--ranging in age from thirteen to seventy-eight--share their journeys of mourning and regeneration. Beginning with the initial period of adjustment and acceptance, covering the first years after a mother's death, and describing lives shaped by loss more than twenty years later, these letters reflect the challenges and triumphs motherless girls and women face over time. The words of these brave women illustrate the profound pain, astounding strength, and personal growth inherent in living through the loss of a mother--without ever outliving the need for her.

As she did in her national bestseller Motherless Daughters, Edelman charts the grief/healing process by weaving her own words with those of scores of women across the country. These letters offer eloquent testimonial to the importance of gaining comfort and support from women who have shared the experience of motherloss. Author on The Today Show.

    Wonderfully Comforting

    This book is a must read to help you deal with the loss of a beloved mother. It gives guidance and perspective no matter at what age you lose your mother. I read it when I lost mine 15 years ago and I gifted it to a friend who lost her mother recently. She says it is really helping her deal with her grief.

    Great Book for helping women deal with the death of their mothers. My sister in law lost her mother and I bought her the book and gave it to her.
