Our mothers always told us to wait until we had kids of our own — then, they said, we’d really understand. Because I Love Her
is a collection of 34 essays edited by Andrea N. Richesin
that explore and explain the complex bonds between mothers and daughters. The essays (by writers including Ayun Halliday, Karen Joy Fowler, Susan Wiggs, and others) are deeply personal and powerful, sharing thoughts about motherhood and grandmotherhood and detailing the hopes women have for their children.
