    OUTSTANDING BOOK

    Susan Shapiro Barash's WOMEN OF DIVORCE: MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS, STEPMOTHERS - THE NEW TRIANGLE is an unusual book in that it addresses the problems that women face during and after divorce. Although the father/husband is obviously in the picture, the mother and stepmother exist in another realm. Barash encourages mothers to be open minded toward stepmothers and for stepmothers to have the courage to forge a relationship with their stepdaughters. She also uncovers some unhappy stories, as well as success stories, and recommends that the daughters be at the center of the mothers' and stepmothers' actions and reactions to events. For instance, if there is a family event and both mother and stepmother will be present, the two women should be respectful, at least, and not make the daughter feel uncomfortable, or that she has to choose between her father's side or her mother's side. The stepmother and mother should also refrain from competing with each other and/or with the daughter. Barash likes the idea of 'co-mothering', which seems to be a solution for the 21st century. This book is a valuable tool in the divorce wars and in the world of stepparenting. The information is helpful and I highly recommend the book.
