Book Summary :

Ray and Estelle Rouse became Bahá'ís in 1941 and raised three children who also became Bahá'ís. Over the course of sixty-two years of marriage, they lived in Washington DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, New Mexico, Puerto Rico, New York, North Carolina, and Arizona, and traveled to England, Israel, Italy, Spain, Guatemala, and Mexico, visiting Bahá'ís and teaching the Bahá'í Faith wherever they went. From humble beginnings on a shoestring budget, they managed to educate their children and pursue their own dreams as well. Estelle was a prolific writer working on her autobiography at the time of her passing at age eighty-seven. Ms. Kaufman draws on Ray and Estelle's own words to tell this story of one family's journey through the twentieth century that took them from post-World War I to space travel and beyond, from the civil rights era to the computer age. As the last remaining survivor of her birth family, she shares the story of her parents' conversion to the Bahá'í Faith and takes a light-hearted look at how their faith affected family life, parenting styles, and the changing relationships within the family.

Book Summary :

This New York Times Notable memoir of a middle-class, middle-America family is a “beautiful bouquet of a book” (Entertainment Weekly). They say “a daughter is a daughter all her life,” and no statement could be truer for Patricia Hampl. Born to a Czech father—an artistic florist—and a wary Irish mother, Hampl experienced a childhood in St. Paul, Minnesota, that couldn’t have been more normal, the perfect example of a twentieth century middle-class, middle-American upbringing. But as she faces the death of her mother, Hampl reflects on the struggles her parents went through to provide that normal, boring existence, and her own struggles with fulfilling the role of dutiful daughter as she grew through the postwar years to the turbulent sixties and couldn’t help wanting to rebel against the notion of a “relentlessly modest life.” Named a Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year, The Florist’s Daughter is Hampl’s most extraordinary work to date—a “quietly stunning” reminiscence of a Midwestern girlhood, and a reflection on what it means to be a daughter (People).

An intergenerational story for the ages.” —Rochelle Weinstein, USA Today best-selling author of Somebody’s Daughter “In her searingly honest memoir, Deborah Burns unpacks what it means to be the daughter of a mistaken-for-a-movie-star mother who refuses to be defeated by life, no matter its disappointments. At once painful and uplifting, and rich with period detail, you will fall in love with both generations.” —Sally Koslow, international best-selling author of Another Side of Paradise “With a journalist’s eye and a poet’s hand, the author conveys the unique texture of her glamorous mother’s elusive love. Heartbreaking and hopeful, searing and soulful, Saturday’s Child is unputdownable—this generation’s Terms of Endearment.” —Meghann Foye, author of Meternity “A cinematic memoir that reads like fiction, with lush, elegant prose that belies a raw, honest narrative of a daughter coming to terms with the narcissistic mother whom she idealized. An unforgettable journey of discovery, understanding, and self-love.” —Lisa Anselmo, author of My (Part-Time) Paris Life: How Running Away Brought Me Home “A universal tale of family and the quest for belonging; of reconciling the secrets we keep with the desire for truth; and of discovering that the unconditional love we all crave from others can ultimately be found inside ourselves.” —Holly C. Corbett, author of The Lost Girls “Mesmerizing. A must-read for any daughter who's ever tried to figure out where her mother ends and she begins.” —Lynnda Pollio, author of Trusting the Currents “A beautifully written love letter to a fascinating mother. I was immediately drawn in by both the prose and the mysteries at the heart of this unique mother-daughter relationship.” —Andrea Jarrell, author of National Book Critics Circle Award-nominee I'm the One Who Got Away “Riveting and affecting; timeless and timely—a stunning debut.” —Bethany Ball, author of What to Do About the Solomons “A poignant, candid exploration of the bond between mother and daughter. In allowing herself to see her mother as a real person, flaws and all, Burns not only sets herself free—she shows the rest of us how to do the same.” —Gayle Brandeis, author of The Art of Misdiagnosis: Surviving My Mother’s Suicide “Deborah Burns fearlessly reveals the hidden truths of a compelling and challenging mother-daughter relationship. Vividly written and thoroughly rewarding!” —Barbara Novack, Writer-in-Residence, Molloy College, and author of Pulitzer Prize–nominated J.W. Valentine “In this captivating memoir, the relationship between an unconventional and fiercely independent mother and the daughter who idolized her is revealed in all its complexity. A story of identity, self-discovery, and forgiveness.” —Jennifer Kitses, author of Small Hours “A heartfelt tale of love, honor, and becoming ... wise and wonderful.” —Agapi Stassinopolous, author of Wake Up to the Joy of You

Book Summary :

Laurie Shoemaker traces six generations of her family who lived in the same South Carolina plantation house built in the 1850s in this memoir chronicling life from the Civil War to the Great Depression and beyond. An Excerpt: “Hey, guys, y’all need to come out here on the porch. It’s cooler and there are a million stars.” Before I finish the sentence, bodies start drifting out. Some lounge on the enormous stone steps, others fill up wicker and rocking chairs. For a moment, no one speaks. They are drinking it all in, the perfumed night, the cloudless firmament, a symphony of pastoral sounds both near this place we call home and far away down the roads and in the fields. Sons and daughters of Liz and Joe, of the Browns and Sloans and Chalmers, relax on the sturdy, broad-beamed porch our ancestors built. There is tranquility in the fresh country air, our individual, unspoken pain salved by the velvet night. Brown eyed Joseph, his grandfather’s namesake asks, “What will become of all this?”

Book Summary :

We were a world of two, my mother and I, until I started turning into an American girl. That's when she began telling me about The Good Daughter. It became a taunt, a warning, an omen. Jasmin Darznik came to America from Iran when she was only three years old, and she grew up knowing very little about her family's history. When she was in her early twenties, on a day shortly following her father's death, Jasmin was helping her mother move; a photograph fell from a stack of old letters. The girl pictured was her mother. She was wearing a wedding veil, and at her side stood a man whom Jasmin had never seen before. At first, Jasmin's mother, Lili, refused to speak about the photograph, and Jasmin returned to her own home frustrated and confused. But a few months later, she received from her mother the first of ten cassette tapes that would bring to light the wrenching hidden story of her family's true origins in Iran: Lili's marriage at thirteen, her troubled history of abuse and neglect, and a daughter she was forced to abandon in order to escape that life. The final tape revealed that Jasmin's sister, Sara - The Good Daughter - was still living in Iran. In this sweeping, poignant, and beautifully written memoir, Jasmin weaves the stories of three generations of Iranian women into a unique tale of one family's struggle for freedom and understanding. The result is an enchanting and unforgettable story of secrets, betrayal, and the unbreakable mother-daughter bond.
