Although interest in mother/daughter relationships has led to a plethora of books on the subject, these books all consider situations found in the mainstream white population. In this book, relationships between mothers and daughters from 13 ethnic groups, including Asian, Black, Latino, and Native American, are explored. The voices of 17 highly successful mothers, in different stages of their life, and their 19 daughters are heard. The reader will learn of their values, intergenerational relationships, and the mother's influence as a role model. The research that confirms and validates these women's life stories is discussed. The book provides valuable insight into the issues facing minority women in the United States.

Although the women in these case studies come from diverse multi-ethnic backgrounds, they have all faced traditional and ethnic barriers and been able to achieve success, becoming role models for their daughters. The book is both a significant contribution to women's and ethnic studies, social sciences and education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dr. Essie Lee's Book...is a treasure. I can't imagine a greater contribution toward the mutual understanding of women of diverse ethnicity in the coming millennium. She accomplishes the impossible task of producing a scholarly, well researched book that is a model of insight and compassion. Later comments by scholars and references to pertinent studies lend depth. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to gain understanding of their future neighbors at home and in the workplace. I wish it were required reading for every college student. As a white female with roots in this country before our Revolutionary War, I thank Dr. Lee for providing me with greater understanding of my ethnic sisters."-Viola M. Young-Horvath Executive Director Federation of Organizations for Professional Women
"The book provides an excellent exposition of the history, values and struggles of a cross-section of ethnic groups within the spectrum of 'people of color'. Although specifically addressing the dilemmas of women of color, it is of interest to the wider audience of those who are interested in understanding the diverse ethnic mix which comprises the contemporary American landscape. The book highlights the similarity of the struggles but divergence in the cultural norms and values of these ethnic groups."-Jeffrey D. Belgrave Licensed Psychologist
"This amazing work is three books in one. It provides portraits and profiles of mothers and daughters of color, from many different backgrounds and cultures. It lets us see into their lives, their homes and their hearts. Alternate chapters explain the migration and acculturation paths of each of the ethnic groups portrayed in the book. Readers will find the stories provocative and the history relevant. They will understand more of what it means to be a non-white woman on the threshold of the twenty first century and how much there is to be learned through the 'telling of the story'."-Ruth W. Messinger C.E.O. and Director American Jewish World Service

?Among mainstream mother/daughter studies, this book is unique, providing an excellent introduction for educators and researchers in social-psychological gender, family, and cross-cultural studies.?-American Journal of Orthopsychiatry
?The book makes fascinating reading; each woman's story is compelling.... A strength of this book is that Lee paints portraits of successful women of color and describes highly functional ethnic minority families. Readers learn how these families define healthy mother-daughter relationships, their values, wedding rituals, and so forth. This makes the book helpful to practitioners and researchers interested in gender, intergenerational issues, and multicultural sensitivity.?-Journal of Marriage and Family
?This book is an excellent source of ideas for researchers interested in indentity, tradition, ethnogenesis, or conflict of memory.?-Intimate Relationships, Family, and Life Course
?This is a solid, often inspiring book that is easy to read and understand. It provides enough background information on the various cultures so that readers can see how these successful women were raised. This work also portrays a positive and nuanced image of nonwhite cultures. Highly recommended.?-Multicultural Review
