Meet the Mitchells: Joyce, a New Englander with time-honored ideas about family, work, and childbearing. And Elizabeth, a young woman who makes unconventional choices about where to live, ways to support herself, and how to give birth. A mother and daughter, half a world apart, who stay connected by writing letters—intimate, honest, loving letters.
Through their letters, you will enter the worlds of two fascinating women. Visit Elizabeth’s home in an idyllic corner of New Zealand. Join Joyce’s whirlwind life in New York City and Vermont. Share their joy, their excitement—and their anxious moments—as they await the birth of Elizabeth’s first child, Joyce’s first grandchild.
From Elizabeth’s announcement, “I have a new love,” to the tense hours leading up to her baby’s birth, these letters will captivate you.
