When writer Carol Saline and photojournalist Sharon J. Wohlmuth released their first book in 1994, they took America by storm, touching countless women with their poignant exploration of sisterhood. In this much-anticipated second work, they turn their empathy and perception to a territory even more intimate - the intense connection shared by mother and daughters. The profoundly personal experiences of the women portrayed in these original essays illuminate a relationship that is awe-inspiring in its power and depth. Some of these women are well known: Cindy Crawford, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Margaret Atwood, and Jamie Lee Curtis. But whether these stories involve famous women or not, their stories express universal feelings of tenderness, pride, and a love so fierce that it is sometimes painful. Mothers and Daughters is a remarkable and evocative tribute to this unbreakable bond.
