After a few more moments of hiking, Strayed thinks, Fuck her, a new layer of grief, this time at what her mother’s early death took away from Strayed—the chance to grow up and “confront her about the things I wished she’d done differently and then grow older and understand that she had done the best that she could. Attests to the explosion of women's writing across Western Europe and to the centrality of the mother-daughter plot . How dare she assume her mother has no right to her own life, that she is too old to make her own decisions?

In an attempt to be “the woman my mother raised,” Strayed hikes the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State, alone, in the summer of 1995, at the age of twenty-six—a rugged and arduous trek that allows her to understand she doesn’t want a way out, an escape, but a way in—to herself and to what’s true, and at the center of that is the mother she has carried with her on the trail, the mother she always will carry with her. Ultimately, these books all include moments—from borrowing a mother’s scarf for the cold walk to school or bringing safety pins to the funeral home so that her gray suit will fit after her illness—that show how some mothers and daughters get it right.It wasn’t until I gave birth to my first child, a daughter, that it dawned on me: I hadn’t even begun to separate from my mother.

If you want a mother-daughter novel that’s also a riveting thriller, check out Wasserman’s ( Girls on Fire) psychological thriller, also available in audiobook. In California, single mother Alice cares for her daughter, Zoe, a girl who struggles with debilitating social anxiety. Siblings Martha and Willow couldn’t be more different – chalk and cheese they’d always been told, especially by their father. When my mother departed this world, she took with her too many undivulged memories and unrealized possibilities. Having rebuilt her life and reconnected by random chance with Ellis, a friend from university, Naomi is ready to start afresh but worried about both her daughter’s reaction to a new man, especially that of Martha who idolised her father.But McCracken and Tillman have done their best with what their mothers left behind, and, as psychologists sometimes say of mothering they approve of, that’s good enough. Naomi is a widow, settled into a peaceful life and enjoying a fledgling relationship with her next-door neighbour, divorced Ellis. As Jenna’s memories collide with Alice’s own accounts in her journals, the story races for a captivating end.
