"A crazy-quilt collection of self-exploratory essays. The disjointed narrative rehashes the emotional, rocky relationships with her mother and children. This personal history of how one woman discovered her self-worth offers inspiration for readers looking for role models from the first wave of feminism a la Friedan."
