Bringing together the writings of women from various walks of life - authors, artists, academics and ordinary people - this volume presents their experiences of being mothers and daughters. The complex emotions women go through, as a mother or a daughter, are portrayed in a variety of ways. The contributors provide humane, intimate and compelling real life narratives. The collection includes true stories on adoptive motherhood, step-mothering and single-motherhood within a South Asian context.
