Mother –Daughter Duet
Cheri Fuller and Ali Plum
From the back of the book?
When your daughter was born, you had a thousand hopes and dreams for her…including that one day you’d be best friends.
But as life unfolds, even the best intentions go awry. There are so many challenges on the journey to adult friendship that the reality is fraught with friction and frustration. Thankfully, a harmonious relationship with your daughter is possible.
Written by a mother and daughter who have successfully navigated the minefield from distance and tension to acceptance and friendship, Mother-Daughter Duet helps moms open wide the door of communication so that daughters want to walk through it. Filled with personal anecdotes and based on proven principles, each chapter offers timeless wisdom as well as a daughter’s perspective. Often these principles apply to daughters-in-law as well.
The relationship between mothers and daughters is intense, personal, complex, and unique. But you can have the loving, authentic bond you always dreamed of-when you learn the mother-daughter duet.
With four daughters, I am all about this book! From the time they were born, I have told them that I was not their friend and couldn’t be until they were adults. I didn’t think about how to make that happen, I just thought that it would. That it would be the inevitable result of being a family.
Don’t laugh too hard at me; I am still a young mother! I love my daughters and can’t wait to be friends with them and now I am glad to have this book to help navigate those waters. I know that a book won’t fix something or make the transition completely without troubles, but at least it’s something. Right? Of course right!
I like that this book has both perspectives in it; the mother’s and the daughter’s. It’s helpful and I can so relate to both of them. Personal stories and practical advice are offered throughout this book and are relatable and timely. This is a book that I will pull out many times in the years to come. I would recommend this book to anyone with daughters or daughters-in-law. :)
