Samantha is lost in the joys of new motherhood—the softness of her eight-month-old daughter's skin, the lovely weight of her child in her arms—but in trading her artistic dreams to care for her child, Sam worries she's lost something of herself. And she is still mourning another loss: her mother, Iris, died just one year ago.

When a box of Iris's belongings arrives on Sam's doorstep, she discovers links to pieces of her family history but is puzzled by much of the information the box contains. She learns that her grandmother Violet left New York City as an eleven-year-old girl, traveling by herself to the Midwest in search of a better life. But what was Violet's real reason for leaving? And how could she have made that trip alone at such a tender age?

In confronting secrets from her family's past, Sam comes to terms with deep secrets from her own. Moving back and forth in time between the stories of Sam, Violet, and Iris, Mothers and Daughters is the spellbinding tale of three remarkable women connected across a century by the complex wonder of motherhood.

    " Interesting multigenerational study, and writing was okay, but it just sort of ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mamama | 2/1/2014

    " Very interestingly-written. Unsatisfying ending. Could have had much more substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Eileen | 1/31/2014

    " Had to get used to moving back and forth among mothers and daughters and different times in their lives but once I did I really enjoyed the poignant stories of lives shared and, especially, not shared. Well done "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carol | 1/22/2014

    " Interesting historical fiction that jumped in each chapter between characters and time periods. Sara, current time. Iris, her mother, current day to daydream flashbacks of the late 50s. And Violet, the grandmother, following her story as a child in the early 1900s. "
