about this book

Drawing from her own experience and the recollections of over seventy other granddaughters, Edelman explores the three-generation triangle from which women develop their female identities: the grandmother-mother-daughter relationship. With insightful personal testimony, she demonstrates the vital roles grandmothers have played in their granddaughters’ lives as a source of unconditional love, family values and traditions, and backup parent-the ultimate safety nets. Ideal for sociology of women courses. 288 pp.

“Beautifully presented....Edelman uses lyrical and moving recollections from her own life to illustrate the tremendous influence grandmothers have on how alliances and boundaries are formed within our families.”
