by Donna W. (Wauwatosa, WI) Have Mother, Will Travel
This book was outstanding. It was at times funny, at times insightful, at times a travel guide, and above all it was always a worthwhile reading experience. The mother/daughter team gave corresponding personal reflections not only on their relationship, but on life in general. Many of their observations really hit a true not with me, or else opened my eyes to something I have not thought about in regard to relationships, or life experiences. I recommend it to all women, even if (like me) you are not the mother of a daughter!

As the mother of two daughters with whom I often travel, I could relate to a large part of this book. I will be traveling to China this fall with one of my daughters and this book has me thinking ahead of what could happen and what I hope doesn't happen. The two authors do a good job of expressing themselves in their individual segments. They have a real sense of what each other is experiencing and yet they are constantly learning so much about each other.
