Inspired me to want to write about the tensions between mothers and daughters and the easier relationship to grandmothers. ( )

Forget the chick lit and romance novels. This is a brilliant read about womens' lives and the relationship of mother and daghter. ( )

Ten years after The Women's Room , French gives us another captivating and lengthy novel on women's lives. Here, Anastasia narrates her life experiences by blending them with those of her grandmother, mother, and daughter. Each woman has been determined not to make the sacrifices her mother made, instead seeking joy, freedom, and independence. And in doing so, each has become like her motheremotionally drained, alienated from her children, and alone. By probing the past and living the present, Anastasia comes to understand the silent bond between mothers and daughters. Highly recommended. Jeris Cassell, Rutgers Univ. Libs., New Brunswick, N.J.
