Mending broken bough by B. Zax

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Few bonds can provoke such powerful feelings of love--or such powerful rage and resentment--as the one between a mother and daughter. This intelligent guide follows in the footsteps of such bestsellers as My Mother, My Self and Reviving Ophelia in its subject matter--but also offers direct, practical advice to women who want to mend and stengthen their relationships with their own mothers and daughters. Written by two licensed family therapists, it offers case histories and "mending moves" that help mothers and daughters understand unspoken messages, identify common mothering styles, express opinions without hurting each other's feelings--and get beyond blame to create a new, lasting legacy of love.
