display_description Sisters, daughters, mothers, wives-Marilyn French's life-affirming saga celebrates four generations of women With Bella Dabrowski close to death, her daughter Anastasia, who has reinvented herself as Stacey Stevens, is trying to penetrate the longstanding barriers between them to understand the woman who gave her life. Through the eyes of Stacey, a divorced, feminist New York photographer, we get to know Bella, a remarkable woman, wife, and mother. The daughter of Polish immigrants, Bella, who renamed herself Belle, clawed her way out of poverty and settled into a middle-class existence. Shifting perspectives between the two women, the reader is drawn into Belle's life through the lean years of the Depression as well as Stacey's recollections of her youthful marriage, a lesbian affair, and her tempestuous relationship with her own daughter, Arden. One of French's most ambitious works, Her Mother's Daughter explores the complex, indestructible bonds between daughters and mothers.
