1. "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter" (September 2008 $14.95)
There is a special bond between a mother and her daughter that, in the vast scope of human relationships, is unparalleled. Sometimes fragile and tenuous but at once as enduring as the Rockies, it is a relationship that is neither static nor shallow. It is evolving and forever—a deep and eternal wellspring.In her daughter, a mother sees her hopes and expectations; fulfillment, perhaps, of her dreams and a journey down the road not taken. From her first breath, a daughter opens new vistas for her mother to reach beyond herself. In her mother, a daughter sees her foundation; her history and the lives of all those women who came before her. She sees herself and understands what it means to be a woman.From borrowed outfits to goofy mannerisms, there is a time when most women must sheepishly admit, "I'm turning into my mother." But while our uncanny connections can draw us closer, sometimes these similarities can drive us up the wall. To help your readers navigate to complexities of their mother-daughter relationships, "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Like Mother, Like Daughter," (Chicken Soup for the Soul, September 30, 2008, 978-1935096-07-8, $14.95) provides a collection of stories written by moms and daughters on maternal wisdom, raising teenage girls, becoming friends with Mom, grandmothers, granddaughters, and more.
