Because I Love Her
“The beauty of this collection is the realization that all the women here remain hopeful.” — Publisher’s Weekly
From the jacket: “This profound and poignant collection highlights some of the best literary writers of our time in an era when the roles of mothers and daughters are constantly being questioned and redefined. Because I Love Her explores the deepest bonds and truths of motherhood by sharing stories and secrets of becoming a mother and grandmother. Ranging from established and bestselling authors to exciting new voices, these women reveal what their mothers taught them, what they in turn hope to impart to their daughters and, finally, what they’ve learned as a bridge between the two.”
Katrina is thrilled to be part of this collection, in such esteemed company as Joyce Maynard, Ann Hood and Ayun Halliday. Katrina’s essay, “Other People’s Mothers,” is a slightly left-field meditation on those mothers not your own who drift through your life. Please check out this great volume, tirelessly edited by Andrea Richesin. Available at independent booksellers and here.
