This is the story of Beatrix Palmer, whose search for her runaway daughter and absent husband takes her on a crazy quilt journey across a continent, across an ocean, and whose search for herself takes her back into history - her own, and that of those women she calls her mothers. Seeking her daughter, she seeks out herself, finding clues scattered in myriad places... In the end, it is her daughter who finds Beatrix. Fiercely accomplished and with a strength and freshness that make it seem as if a long-held taboo were being shattered, Her Mothers is often harsh, frequently funny, at times abrupt; it insists, it is relentless. Beautifully and knowingly constructed, it is a work of compelling vision.
