In her acclaimedNew York Timesbestseller,Motherless Daughters, Hope Edelman explored the profound and lasting effects of mother loss, as well as her own search for healing.Now, in her compelling new work, Edelman explores another complex, life-changing relationship, the intricate bond between generations. 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 eloquent 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 net. Here are grandmothers in all their glory: The Benevolent Manipulator, whose love for her family is matched only by her desire for control; The Gentle Giant, awesome, respected, who possesses a quiet, behind-the-scenes power; The Autocrat, who rules her extended family like a despot; The Kinkeeper, the family hub, who offers a sense of cohesion to the extended clan. With insight and compassion, Edelman probes this unique and emotionally-charged relationship in a book that is a true celebration of an extraordinary bond--and a must read for every woman.
