A book of essays about women's feelings on having and raising a daughter. While it seemed they tried to get a good scope of women to comment, only one had anything to say about faith (or two if you count the Buddhist), so that was a drawback. It is funny how so many of us try to stop the pink and princesses but pretty much all talk about how girls are attracted to that. It is also so much easier for a girl to chose to be a tomboy.
I had no negative emotions about having a girl, am fine with pink, have a great relationship with my mom and a fun childhood so (fortunately) I did not relate to all of the essays.
I actually got this under fall premises :) I had read a memoir by Carolyn Webber and wanted to look up other stuff by her, one contributor's first name is Carolyn and another's last name is Webber! But I am glad I read it, it gives me hope to walk this road of raising a daughter with so many other women.
