A refreshingly positive perspective on the mother-daughter relationship that captures both voices, Between Mother and Daughter is geared toward both mothers and teenage girls who want to maintain or rekindle a healthy relationship during the sometimes difficult teen years. Each chapter begins with a scenario that relates to common issues between mothers and daughters -- dating, sex, clothes, housework, drugs, etc. -- followed by each author's individual perspective.
"Here Ford, a family counselor, and her daughter Amanda, a college student, share their insights into building a successful relationship. The book is jointly written, and the authors explore such issues as trust and freedom, talking about difficult subjects, and avoiding guilt trips, with a major emphasis on finding ways to stay connected even when disagreements arise. The promise of a mutually nurturing future relationship is held out as the reason and key to weathering the storms of the teenage years." -- Kay L. Brodie, Library Journal
