Mother-Daughter Duet by Cheri Fuller & Ali Plum

"When your daughter was born, you had a thousand hopes and dreams for her....including that one day you'd be best friends." Mother and Daughter Duet
As the mother of five girls, I hope to be able to say someday that they have grown into some of my closest friends, and I am so thankful to God that I can say that my oldest daughter, Becky, and I are the best of friends, and my other girls and I seem to be heading down this same joyous path!!
I have to say, that I learned how to build these relationships with my daughters from my own mother, who is my best friend.
If you are not blessed to have such wonderful relationships, mother and daughter team, Cheri Fuller & Ali Plum have written the book, Mother and Daughter Duet

The chapters begin with "Letting Go" and continue through various life milestones that we all go through and how to deal with them harmoniously with our daughters, from the time they leave the nest, get married and then become mothers themselves.

The chapters are written from the perspective of both the mother and daughter, which I enjoyed. The book also includes discussion questions which would be helpful in working through our own mother daughter relationships.

If you are looking to improve upon your relationship with your daughter, I do recommend this book.

This book was provided for review by the Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing group.
