      They are the lesser-known victims of Rwanda's genocide, 25 years after it happened. She has this long pony tail. When Tyan-yu and Lindo were one and two, respectively, a matchmaker arranged for their marriage. And so by the time she was pregnant for the fourth time, she wondered--with no small amount of anxiety--what if, this time, she had a daughter? Yet hers is a cruel power: she is deceptive and manipulative.

      He is the father of her three children: Vincent, Waverly, and Winston. The car stops in front of the brick building that's home to Catholic Charities. She called a close female friend to tell her that--knowing she would understand just how she felt. What more is there to say? But she brings to any number of regions of the world--and a whole range of subjects--her generous mind and wit.

      Excerpt What is woman's place? We find ourselves muttering, like the Wicked Witch of the West, "Just you wait, my pretty. They are the lesser-known victims of Rwanda's genocide, 25 years after it happened. And with the combination of relaxation and one-on-one time they offer, spa vacations can offer a perfect opportunity for mothers and daughters of every age to reconnect.

Mothers and daughters book

I could have opened the cases, put on their jewels, taken up their tools, and picked up where they left off without a moment's hesitation or confusion.

They sat together, cuddled in the corner, the same seats everyday. Years later, when Roberts refinances her house, her lawyer asks her to sign a "nothing" truth-in-lending document. Where were they? With the attendant immune problems from chemotherapy, hospital stays became common for both of us as I took on the role of what Barbara called her "private duty sister.

Roberts described Boggs' inserting the words "or sex or marital status" into legislation that barred banks from denying loans for discriminatory reasons.

But this time nothing else was the same. She started the club in China, in the early days of her first marriage. Mamma would come up from Washington for most of the time as well. And Barbara handled the whole thing with such incredible style and panache, sporting spectacular sequined or feathered eye patches with evening dresses, matching an outfit with a color- coordinated patch for everyday wear.

Uncle Nephi was there with us, and he made arrangements to have Mother transported back home, as she had expressed her wish to die there. For women like me, who grew up and graduated from college before the revolution, it's all gotten a little exhausting.

That little museum has always symbolized for me the great strength of women. Intimacy, she thought.

She had a whole routine about how women she knew were producing their own grandchildren with these late- in- life babies. Objects of war and objects of worship, recognizable for soldiers and priests, but what of the others? Mother continued to get sicker and sicker.

He was killed in a car accident at the age of sixteen. The cord is red and is wrapped around the baby's neck.

Now I'm finally old enough, and have had enough life experience of my own, to listen to my mother. My two closest friends arranged their vacation schedules to make sure that I would never be alone if I needed them, and they filled in the blanks that I was leaving at work without my even knowing about it.

From her bag, she produces a tiny white dress--the same one Ellen's mother dressed her in when she was born. In the final group of stories, the mothers struggle to offer solutions and support to their daughters, in the process learning more about themselves.

She tries at Thanksgiving, then at Christmas. Lying in her hospital bed, she was terribly frail and had a faraway look in her eyes, like she was already partway gone to the other side.

The daughters are frequently baffled by their mothers, and the love that the daughters feel is typically late-blooming.

The daughters tend to think that the role of the mother is to be unconditionally kind, supportive, and encouraging.

Despite their idealized notion of a mother, in reality, they often feel criticized and pressured by their mothers. Two new books look at the influence mothers have on their daughters' body image—and how women can instill confidence instead of insecurity.
