Because I love her

I’m in a new anthologyBecause I Love Her — in which 34 women explore the mother-daughter bond. And I just got home from my third reading this month, including a TV interview with Andrea N. Richesin.

Intense: these women really open up about their relationships with their mothers. And it inspires me.

Cool Mom Picks featured the collection this week, and the San Francisco Chronicle is featuring Bay Area essayists this weekend.

Journalist Regan McMahon writes:

Women recall incidents from childhood; things they remember their mother saying, doing or not doing; and examine how this affects what kind of mother they are. Some had a mother so loving, capable and unflappable, they fear they’ll never measure up to her. Others had a mother who was mentally ill, absent or died young, even at her own hand, leaving their daughters to figure out how to be the mother they never had.

And now, for the exciting news: Harlequin is giving away copies of Because I Love Her to FIVE readers.

How can you win?


Answer this question: What do you think that M and I are doing in the photo above?

[Edit: So many of you — below — already answered that one!… Instead, please send some love to a mother today, any mother, and tell us why you appreciate her]


Five winners will be chosen randomly with the help of random.org.
