From the celebrated author of The Dance of Anger comes an extraordinary book about mothering and how it transforms us-and all our relationships-inside and out. Written from her dual perspective as a psychologist and a mother, Lerner brings us deeply personal tales that run the gamut from the hilarious to the heart-wrenching. From birth or adoption to the empty nest, The Mother Dance teaches the basic lessons of motherhood: that we are not in control of what happens to our children, that most of what we worry about doesn't happen, and that our children will love us with all our imperfections if we can do the same for them. Here is a gloriously witty and moving book about what it means to dance the mother dance.

"Mother, author and psychologist Harriet Lerner authentically illustrates the many dilemmas of motherhood, citing personal anecdotes and experiences from her clientele. Suzanne Toren thoughtfully narrates this journey of feminine identity. Her conversant style acknowledges our quandaries from pregnancy to the empty nest. How will motherhood change our lives? Who or what do we become when we become mothers? The novelist's humor and commiseration enliven her discussions of women as mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, aunts and grandmothers, as well as career women. Toren animates our vulnerabilities in these paradoxical relationships. B.J.L. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
