helpful. I love this book!"
CARMEN RENEE BERRY, author of
girlfriends and Daddies & Daughters
"In this book Mary Marcdante leads us by the hand as she shares
her own journey and helps us take the first steps towards our own healing and celebration
with our mothers."
LOUISE L. HAY, author of
You Can Heal Your Life and Empowering Women
"With a caring, personal, and comforting style, My Mother, My
Friend offers a wealth of suggestions and guidelines for talks with our mothers on
ten important, but sometimes emotionally charged, topics. Marcdante gently encourages her
readers with stories and provides lists of questions and specific responses/answers to
help keep communication flowing. I wish I'd had this helpful, insightful book when my
mother and I were struggling with so many difficult issues in the months after my father's
death. I will recommend it to my clients!"
- ALEXANDRA KENNEDY, author of Losing a Parent and
The Infinite Thread: Weaving Connections Beyond Loss
"A practical and encouraging step-by-step process that will not
only transform how you relate to your mother, but also to yourself."
C. LESLIE CHARLES, author of
Why is Everyone So Cranky? and All Is Not Lost
"Mary Marcdante doesn't waste time on theories. She shares
"real-life" stories and suggestions that show exactly how to build an enduring,
mutually rewarding relationship between mother and daughter. You'll reflect, smile,
tear-up, and then reach for the phone to make that all important call that will launch the
friendship you've always wanted to have. Read
it and reap."
SAM HORN, author of Tongue Fu! and ConZentrate
"Mary Marcdante eloquently shows you how to give yourself a
priceless gift: an authentic conversation with your mother. No matter your relationship,
you will create a connection that will mean the world to both you and your mother."
MARY LOVERDE, author of
Stop Screaming at The Microwave and Touching Tomorrow
"Rarely does a book compel me to rush immediately into action,
but My Mother, My Friend did just that. Mary Marcdante's stories about her mother
-- and her thoughtful guidelines for conversations with your own mother -- are a wonderful
gift. You could go through the next years without asking your mother certain precious
questions, but don't deprive yourself -- or her. Read this book!"

"Dads are wonderful and
important, but there's something special about mothers, the givers of life; they give us
humanity, they give us hope and they teach us unconditional love. For every man who has
ever tried to talk about difficult subjects with his mother, wife, daughter, or sister, My
Mother, My Friend will help you understand them better and talk with them more
