A Mother's Heart, A Daughter's Love
"A mother and a daughter. Like songs, their two voices sing alone, in unison, and even harmonize on the page in these twenty-five exquisite poems written by National Book Award winner Joyce Carol Thomas. Celebrating the moments in life that form the unique bond between every mother and daughter, A Mother's Heart, A Daughter's Love is a must-have Mother's Day gift to read aloud, to cherish, and to share with every generation."
Joanna Cotler Books, HarperCollins

Excerpts from the book:

"WHAT I LOVE" from A MOTHER'S HEART, A DAUGHTER'S LOVE

Daughter's Voice:
What I love about you
Mama, is this:
The smell of your hair
After coconut shampoo
The nape of your neck
Where I nestle my nose
Your fragrant pillow Your scented clothes

Mother's Voice:
And what I love about you
Sweetie, is this:
Herbal tea stepped in cozy
Morning
Brisk walks up a
Windy hill
Meditation in the silent
Stillness
Delight that laughs away
The chill
