This is a diverse collection of essays written by graduates of Barnard College. Writers such as Zora Neale Hurston, Erica Jong, and Anna Quindlen reflect on their mothers and their relationships with them It was fascinating to read about these diverse women and their impact on their daughters' lives. I enjoyed it.
