Hope Edelman is the author of Motherless Daughters, a wonderful book on mother loss and how it effects girls/women.
Motherless Daughters was a very important book. Women who lost their moms physically and many whose mothers are still alive but not in their lives in a meaningful way found great comfort reading Edelman's words. Her book inspired many Motherless Daughter's groups and much healing came as a result of it. I recently gave it as a gift to a new friend who shared with me how she lost her mother at age four.
While Motherless Daughters was full of anecdotes and personal stories it had a very rational journalistic vibe. My favorite parts of the book were when Edelman broke apart from the journalism and shared her own personal stories. I wanted more of that.
I think I'm really going to love The Possibility of Everything.
