From Persephone to Sylvia Plath the mother-daughter relationship has been central to every woman's life. This is the history over ten thousand years of the drama at the heart of that intense loving and hating relationship, told through the letters, diaries, writings and case histories of women through the ages.
Using her wide experience as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, Nini Herman traces the struggles of mothers and daughters to free themselves from each other - to recognize each other as separate. Where they succeed, their relationship can be the source of enduring strength; when they fail, it can lead to frustration, madness and even suicide.
Nini Herman shows how every generation of women contributes to the independence of future women as each embarks on the quest for her own identity.
