about this book

This landmark study written more than 20 years ago plays a major role in our understanding of the powerful influence the mother/daughter bond has on a woman's identity, her relationships with men, and her self-esteem. Through candid self-disclosure and hundreds of interviews, Nancy Friday investigates this feminine legacy and reveals the conflicting feelings of anger, hate, and love that daughters hold for their mothers. 448 pp.

"A fascinating facet of this complex (and often destructive) bond goes unmentioned."
-The New York Times Book Review
