These four books will take you through the variant shades of mother-daughter relationships. A must read for book-lovers.
The role of a mother in a daughter’s life is pretty unstated. Unlike the moniker ‘Daddy’s Little Girl’, no catchphrases exist to simplify their tangled relationships with their daughters.
Thankfully, here are a few books on mother-daughter bonds that you must read:
Ingrid is a complex, icy woman and a famous poet. She murders a lover who dares to jilt her. The story is narrated by Astrid, from age 12 onwards as she weaves through the labyrinth of foster care parents.
Her mother’s brutality and poise both enrapture Astrid as she moves through other mother figures – the ex-stripper whose lover she steals despite her mother’s warnings, the shrew who starves her, the resplendent whore across the street, and the fragile, suicidal Claire – the mother she wants but can’t have.
Though this book is dark, the evocative writing of Janet Fitch brings this book to life.
This is a book for those who love the written word and the complexity of interpersonal relationships.
For those who loved The Gone Girl – I recommend Sharp Objects another menacing, it’s not what you think thriller from the stable of Gillian Flynn.
Not completely centered around mother-daughter relationships, it still paints an interesting, complex relationship between the protagonist and her mother.
Unlike the above two recommendations, this book is a saccharine read on the bonding between a southern mother and her daughter as they overcome dysfunctional relationships to set on the path of forgiveness.
I didn’t love the characters, but you are sure to recognize a bit of yourself and your mother in them.
Amy Tan is one of my favorite cross-over novelists. The Joy Luck Club traces the story of 4 sets of mothers and daughters.
This is a poignant, personal book that covers the journeys that mothers and daughters take together.
As they despair or take pride – the reader navigates through a mother’s journey and her challenges as she struggles to bring up her daughter in a culture far from home.

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
