Letters for My Daughter

Authored by Ann Howells
Edition: First Edition

Letters for My Daughter, consists of poems about the relationship between a mother and daughter. It begins at the daughter's birth and extends to her marriage and beyond. In this case, the daughter deals with several illnesses. The poems are universal, as every child will have some problems, physical, mental, or behavioral in the process of becoming an adult. The problems may not be the same as the ones included here, but mothers are likely to understand the trepidation with which such problems are approached and eventually overcome.
