Today, following decades of scientific and psychological study, there is overwhelming evidence that mother love does forever shape the life of a child. In her compelling new work, however, author and psychologist Brenda Hunter presents a convincing argument that indicates this love is even more powerful, even more far-reaching than our culture has yet realizednot only for the child, but for the mother.
Affirming the immeasurable value of the mothering role while realistically addressing womens greatest questions and concerns, Hunter clearly reveals how mother love positively affects the way a woman defines herself. All mothers, and all those who care about the lives of women, children, and the future of our society will be dramatically impacted by this not-to-be-missed book, skillfully written to empower women to mother from the heart.
