    An absolutely phenomenal collection of stories!

    An outstanding book containing terrific stories by incredibly talented writers! The reader is carried along on a journey through many emotions: hurt at a mother¿s betrayal; disbelief at a father¿s unimaginable cruelty; love by a daughter for her aging parents; agony of a daughter¿s bedside vigil; remorse by a mother struggling to come to terms with her daughter¿s sexuality; tenderness as a kindly woman ¿lends¿ an ear to a tearful young woman; fright as a daughter does the ¿unthinkable¿ to a parent; determination as a young woman struggles with her health; reserved happiness as a daughter returns home with her lover after several years. Whether the story is from a daughter¿s viewpoint or a mother¿s, each story will touch your heart. Some stories are memoirs, some are fiction; all are very memorable. No matter if you struggled, were loved or hated for your sexual identity, this book has a story for every reader.

    Review of The Milk of Human Kindness by Cheri Rosenberg

    'The Milk of Human Kindness: Lesbian Authors Write about Mothers and Daughters,' edited by Lori L. Lake, is an anthology of stories and memoirs that will touch your heart and stay with you long after the last page is read. Twenty-three talented authors have shared their feelings about the complex relationship between mothers and daughters through fiction, essays, or memoirs. This fine collection of short stories may have been written for a gay audience, but straight women will enjoy 'The Milk of Human Kindness' and learn from it as well. The fact that mother/daughter relationships are often fraught with issues makes it no surprise that this anthology has something to offer everyone. According to Lake, ¿the experiences are not just lesbian-related, though they certainly are lesbian-themed. Anyone who has had any sort of mother/daughter relationship will surely feel for so many of the characters. Lots of angst, regret, and grief in the book - but also some unexpected humor. It was an interesting thing to put together.¿ I agree with Lake and I can tell what a labor of love this project was for her. Her time and effort paid off in producing a well-written, insightful collection of literature. Everyone craves unconditional love and acceptance by the person who nurtured them¿ regardless of sexual orientation. The anthology encompasses thoughts of daughters and mothers; it spans a few generations to give different points of view. Katherine V. Forrest asks,¿ Does the need for a mother ever leave?¿ Perhaps not. Forrest continues, ¿Among women, our deeper friendships contain, along with love and warmth, elements of nurturing, protectiveness, guiding, mentorship, and wound-binding.¿ Women need each other on many different levels, and the fortunate ones have at least one woman in their lives¿be it their mother, lover, or friend¿who fulfills this need. 'The Milk of Human Kindness' depicts many aspects of the human condition. Lori L. Lake¿s fiction, 'The Bright Side,' shows how a mother¿s criticisms can deeply affect her daughter. In this story we see a mother who is so critical of her daughter she compliments her on her weight loss even though it is due to chemotherapy for breast cancer! In addition, she is disappointed that her daughter is gay and throws it in her daughter¿s face¿even during a family crisis. This is not to say that we don¿t love our critical mothers, but our mothers¿ unfavorable comments often hurt the worst. In 'Train Tracks,' fiction by Cameron Abbott, a simple question between sisters discussing their ailing, possibly dying mother, ¿Has she asked for me?¿ evokes emotions of a daughter who against all odds still yearns for unconditional love by a mother who never accepted her. 'The Tuesday Before Thanksgiving,' fiction by Georgia Beers, is about a mother with preconceived notions and prejudice regarding her daughter¿s sexuality. By the time she accepts her, she reads in the paper, ¿President Bush says ¿No¿ to gay unions,¿ and her heart aches for her daughter. Her tune changes from, ¿My daughter is a lesbian,¿ to, ¿My daughter is happy.¿ The memoir by Carrie Carr, 'Hiding in Plain Sight' is about one woman¿s journey from self-hatred and despair to self-love and happiness. Carr shares a hard-earned and important revelation when she writes, ¿Sometimes, the only person you are hiding from is yourself,¿ when she was sure that coming out would ruin her life. She was fortunate to gain the love and support of her family and find a loving partner. She learned a very valuable lesson and by sharing her story, she taught a lesson as well. Karin Kallmaker¿s witty and insightful memoir, 'Dangling Earrings,' tells how her mother taught her the importance of what others think. Nice girls don¿t wear flashy earrings. She in turn wants to teach her children ¿¿how they feel about themselves, on the inside, is more important than the opinions of strangers.¿ 'Grandmother¿s Cup,' fiction by Lois Cloarec Hart, sh
