"This book is important to every mother and daughter, and to every woman who wants to be one." Maya Angelou
An unusual love story that started in the North, unfolded in the South, and captured hearts of all ages everywhere. Who would think a die-hard New Yorker caring for a declining, doll-collecting, hoarder mother in the Bible Belt would turn into the adventure of a lifetime? Throw in bingo playing drag queens, long-standing family feuds and unresolved guilt in every direction. In the end Jo found that love blooms and laughter erupts in the most unlikely of situations. Don't dread it. Embrace it. A memoir bestseller, When I Married My Mother has proven to be a you'll-laugh-you'll-cry story that has helped countless readers navigate, prepare for or grieve their own story of a loved one in decline. Though every situation is different, the emotions and decisions that need to be made are similar. The eBook and paperback editions include bonus material of caregiving tips, discussion questions and an author Q&A.
