My Mother’s Daughter

Every woman will recognize aspects of herself in Rona Maynard’s clear-eyed memoir of the devoted yet fiercely controlling mother who shaped her life. Rona struggled for decades to become her own woman. But it was at the bedside of her dying mother that she found permission to pursue her biggest, boldest dream. Alice Munro calls Rona’s memoir “wonderfully honest and enthralling.”
