I first read Hope Edelman's book in 2014 and then read her follow up book, "Letters from Motherless Daughters." Both books have helped me immensely to deal with my mother's death which occurred when I was 16. Edelman's insightful book addresses mother loss at various life stages and how this singular event affects a daughter's life forever. I am now reading the second edition, because I am entering another stage of life (retirement) and have outlived my mother by 11 years. I find her book as helpful now (perhaps more) as I did the first time. I highly recommend this book for any woman of any age who has lost her mother, or for anyone who wants to understand someone who's lost their mother.

I was deeply grieving the loss of my mother as I read this book, published just one year after her death. I found it very helpful in finding a place for my feelings and it helped me to feel less alone in the world, to know that in some way the feelings I had, others had experienced, too. I recommend it for other daughters and often lend out my copy. All kinds of losses and relationships are acknowledged and respected.
