Book Review- Mother Daughter Duet

Mother Daughter Duet
By Cheri Fuller


When a daughter is born, her mother has a thousand hopes and dreams for her, especially that they will best friends one day.

Unfortunately, even the best of intentions can go awry. There are so many challenges on the journey to adult friendship that the reality is fraught with friction and frustration. But a harmonious relationship is possible.

Award-winning author Cheri Fuller and her daughter, Ali Plum have been there and have discovered the keys to a healthy relationship. In "Mother Daughter Duet" They share their story - each from her own perspective - in which they have experienced distance and tension, growth and challenge, and ultimately, acceptance and harmony. Filled with personal anecdotes and based on several basic principles (letting go; listening; respect;' setting boundaries; and more), "Mother-Daughter Duet" helps moms repair the breach so that daughters want to draw close.

The mother-daughter dynamic is intense, personal complex, and unique. But mothersa and daughters can achieve mutual respect and learn to celebrate their differences when they learn the two-part harmony of the mother-daughter duet.


This book is told from the viewpoint of the mother and her daughter. I really like the different aspects as seen by two sets of eyes. There is also a quote from different people at the beginning of the chapters.

As a daughter who's relationship is strained, at best, with my mother, the book was a bitter-sweet read for me. It's a book that every daughter should read and a book we wish our mother's would read.

I highly recommend this book; we can all benefit from a better relationship with our mothers & daughters.
