Synopsis: The mother-daughter relationship defines who we are, how we view ourselves, and what we want for our lives. Much like this multi-faceted relationship, the lessons in Our Mothers, Our Daughters are strong, yet soft. Through a collection of curated stories, readers journey alongside moms and daughters as they share poignant moments and messages of an everlasting bond. A Divas That Care anthology, this book showcases the collaboration and celebration of women and is presented in three collections: Connection, Inner Self, and Unconditional Love.

The Reader Views Literary Awards “were established with the vision of leveling the playing field for authors who choose to self-publish or work with subsidy publishers, small presses, university presses, or independent book publishers. Our mission is to recognize the creative and exciting new voices that often go unheard in the traditional publishing landscape.”
