Welcome to my online community. Instead of wine or coffee, I’m serving stories—the kind women tell among friends.
They’re drawn from my life and other lives that have inspired me. I’m lucky enough to have spent my career exchanging stories with women. At Chatelaine, where I spent a decade as Editor, I shared my defining moments in a monthly column. Thousands of readers identified. They taught me how much we have in common—and how much we have to learn from one another.
The conversation continues right here. You'll learn about my new memoir, My Mother's Daughter, which Chatelaine readers encouraged me to write. You can read and comment on some of my most popular articles. You can post a story in honour of your own mother-or your daughter. And you can follow my blog, Letters from Rona. Now over to you.

The foie gras follies
I'm amazed and grateful to have slept well last night after a blow-out dinner at Opus, a friend's generous treat. I felt sure I was in for what the French, who know a thing or two about the true price of self-indulgent dining, call "une crise de foie." Which would have been apt, since our meal began with foie--as in foie gras on a bed of maple apples, for which Opus is renowned. [more]
