Mother Daughter Duet by Cheri Fuller

Mother Daughter Duet is a guidebook to developing a harmonious relationship between a mother and an adult daughter. Written by a mother and daughter, this book reveals both sides of common conflicts that come up in the changing relationship dynamic. This duet was written in order to inspire the reader to a loving and authentic bond in their relationship.

I had a difficult time reading this book. It felt like drudgery to finish it. I thought it was very superficial and like a bandaid on a gaping wound. It did not satisfy. In defense of the book, I am sure that there are a lot of women who could glean much knowledge from this book.

There were a few good points and ideas to help mothers and daughters engage their relationship. It suggested taking your mom/daughter to the movies or out to eat or shopping to foster relationship. There was also some insight into problems that often arise in a mother daughter relationship that could help you overcome simple conflict.

This book was provided by Waterbrook Multnomah for review.
