In this gloriously witty and moving book, New York Times best-selling author Harriet Lerner explores motherhood and how it forever transforms your relationships. She joyfully infuses The Mother Dance with life-changing wisdom, heart-warming stories, and words of healing. Writing as both a mother and a psychologist, Lerner shares important lessons she has learned in her experiences from pregnancy to the empty nest: some things are out of your control, worrying only results in pain, and children will love you unconditionally if you do the same for them. With extraordinary insight and practical advice, she helps distinguish between the times when you can bring about change and the occasions when you should simply let go. An internationally-acclaimed expert on the psychology of women, Lerner approaches the complex issues of mothering with clarity, humor, and honesty. You will feel as if you are visiting with a dear friend as you listen to narrator Suzanne Toren's moving performance.

"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"
