272 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Inscribed by the author. FICTION. Here is a moving, powerful novel, full of insight and surprise, about the confrontation between a mother and daughter...between two women, each in her own way extraordinary. The "mother" of the title is Gerda Stein, a brilliant, successful lawyer in New York, a specialist in civil liberties cases, a champion of the oppresses. In her own life she is sure and rational-the misery she meets in her work evokes no passion, only an abstract desire for justice. After an eight-year absence, daughter Renata returns to her mother's home, carrying with her a daughter of her own, born out of wedlock. The child will be the focus of a painful struggle between Gerda and her daughter-the symbol of what each wants from the other, what neither is willing to give. (Key Words: Autobiography, Signed Books, Rosellen Brown, Fiction, Mothers, Daughters).
